My research focuses on the neurocognition of memory and cognitive control for which I mainly use spectrotemporal brain imaging techniques, such as EEG and MEG. I am especially interested in cognitive and memory enhancement - for example, via motivational states and neurofeedback training - and the individual differences thereof, which I aim to explore with diffusion MRI.
