I am a cognitive neuroscientist working at C3NL, Imperial College London and the Sobell Department of Motor Neuroscience, University College London.

I combine non-invasive brain stimulation (tACS/tDCS) with brain imaging techniques, functional neuorimaging and electrophisiology, in order to study how brain stimulation can be use to modulate brain activity.

I am currently a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellow studying how attention can be improved after traumatic brain injury. My research is focused on the modulation of brain oscillations through biofeedback and neurostimulation. I am
interested in how brain oscillations mediate connectivity and particularly how neurostimultaion could be use to improve communication in brain networks following brain injury.

During my Fellowship I will be working between the labs of Professor David Sharp at Imperial College London and Professor John Rothwell at University College London.
