Research Theme

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Interests

My research interests are modelling the cognitive processes and representations underlying language comprehension. Currently I am using functional neuroimaging techniques such as EEG, MEG and fMRI, alongside multivariate pattern analysis techniques to investigate this. I am interested in computational models of language comprehension, and how they can inform our understanding of human cognition.
