About me

Education:

I have a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Electronic Engineering from Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland in 2008. I completed a PhD in Visual Perception from Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland where I examined the hemodynamic and neural correlates of basic visual properties such as contrast, depth, motion and motion parallax using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and event-related potentials (ERPs).

Work:

From 2013 to 2015, worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Iowa,USA looking at how manipulation of memory load would affect working memory and inhibitory control using functional magnetic reasonance imaging (fMRI) and fNIRS. Here, I also developed some novel methodological pipelines for analyzing fNIRS data. From 2015 to 2017, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of East Anglia,England examining the development of visual working memory across the lifespan - particularly in infancy and early childhood and older adults.
