My research domain is Cognitive Neuroscience. The questions that motivate my research all revolve around visual short term memory. Specifically, I'm interested in how do we maintain visual information that is no longer present? How does the brain represent visual memories across eye movements and over time? What are the mechanisms underlying forgetting in healthy people and patients with brain disorders?
I am currently engaged in investigating these topics using various research methods including fMRI and behavioural experiments, in healthy individuals and patients with neurological disorders (e.g. hemispatial neglect following stroke and familial Alzheimer’s disease). I am part of a team that is also developing a new computational framework designed to capture novel, key aspects of visual memory encoding and maintenance.
