Overview

Research summary

My research interest is investigating sensorimotor oscillations in both healthy ageing and pathology such as stroke using a combination of MEG, EEG and fMRI. I am interested in understanding how beta oscillations may be involved in sensorimotor integration in the brain. I aim to explore how beta oscillations change during motor learning and how this can be influenced pharmacologically in order to potentially increase plasticity and the impact of training. I am the MEG fellow on the Wellcome Trust Strategic Award at CUBRIC. As part of this I will also be exploring how somatosensory oscillations induced in response to sensation and pain alter during different types of sedation, endeavouring to understand the mechanism of action of some of these drugs.

Teaching summary

I have taught on undergraduate and MSc courses giving lectures on neuroimaging and the sensorimotor system, and have also run tutorials and journal clubs. I have run statistics and programming practicals for psychology undergraduate courses. I have supervised undergraduate, MSc and PhD students.
