I am a cognitive neuroscientist using advanced brain stimulation and neuroimaging techniques to study social cognition and executive functioning across the healthy lifespan and in clinical groups. I also have interests in neuropsychology, behavioural genetics, and schizophrenia research.

Research Interests

  • Non-invasive brain stimulation
    I am interested in the use of non-invasive brain stimulation methods, such as transcranial direct current stimulation, to study higher-order cognitive functions such as social cognition and executive functioning.
  • Modular or domain-general processes and the prefrontal cortex
    Assessing cognitive performance across the healthy lifespan and in clinical conditions such as schizophrenia. A strong focus on unique and common explanations of variance on measures of executive function.
  • Self-other processing
    How do humans represent information in relation to the self or another? How is this influenced by factors such as age, cultural background, gender? How do social cognitive and executive processes overlap? What is the relevance for clinical disorders such as schizophrenia?
