I joined the School of Physics and Astronomy as a lecturer in October 2016. My work focusses on the area of Computational Physics with applications in electrophysiology (electro/magneto-encephalography) and diffusion magnetic resonance imaging.

My research is based at the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC), where I hold the role of Lead for Engagement.
