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.
