At the heart of my science, I aim to understand the mysterious phenomenon of consciousness.
My research involves manipulating one of the dimensions of consciousness (arousal level) either in a natural sleep-awake process or through sedation.
The aim of my PhD is to generate a body of work capable of characterising a dynamic phenomenon like consciousness during its transitions by developing new and using existing mathematical tools for analysing dynamical systems. I use behavioural measures, Electroencephalography (EEG), Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), Electrocorticography (ECoG) to probe my research question.
I'm currently funded by the Gates Cambridge Scholarship for my PhD program.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
