My research interests lie in the field of Cognitive Neuroscience, especially trying to understand the mechanisms of over time memory changes in behaviours and in brain activities.

My PhD work employed a series of facial images and examined how memories of initially trained faces vary over time, especially over periods of sleep, with techniques of memory tests (e.g. Recognition Memory Test), sleep EEG and brain imaging analysis.
