I am interested in individual differences in visual short-term memory capacity. I use behavioural experiments, fMRI and MVPA to try to understand the nature and precision of visual short-term memory representations and how these may differ between people and influence capacity. I am particularly interested in visual memory for complex and naturalistic objects.
I studied Experimental Psychology at the University of Bristol. I worked as a research assistant at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School in Singapore before moving to Cambridge, where I worked on Dynamically Adaptive Imaging. I am currently studying for a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience.
