I work as a post-doctoral research associate in the Computational, Cognitive and Clinical Neuroimaging Lab (C3NL) at Imperial College London. 

Currently I am working on various projects involving traumatic brain injury patients with a focus on the use of functional MRI and diffusion tensor imaging to investigate the neural basis of post-traumatic amnesia and the effects of methylphenidate on both cognitive function and brain networks. 

My background is in pharmacological functional imaging, with a specific interest in ketamine as a model of glutamatergic dysfunction.
