My work combines a variety of techniques from cognitive and system neuroscience to study the neural mechanisms of information processing and cognitive control. I am interested in multiple aspects that modulate the way we process information such as contextual effects, current goals and attention. With background in computer science and psychology, I am using advanced analysis methods for a diverse range of neural signals to investigate how we process information successfully and what happens when the system fails. My translational research includes development of tools for patient-tailored functional mapping for patients with brain tumours before, during and after awake neurosurgeries.
