Research Theme

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Interests

I am interested in the study of Neuroimaging biomarkers for risk and clinical outcome prediction of Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction (Project BioCog).

I am also interested in the study of the neural basis of the cognitive, emotional and behavioural impairments associated with traumatic brain injury, substance addiction and obesity.
