I am a Neuroscientist with a background in Engineering Physics. My research focuses on the application of functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and statistical techniques to map the neurocognitive mechanisms in the human brain involved in higher-order cognition.


Mar 31, 2023 It was great to give a talk at the MNI Feindel Brain and Mind Lecture Series ! :grinning: You can now check my slides on the Selected Talks page.
