Research Summary

My main interest is Magnetoencephalography (MEG), the measurement of magnetic fields created by electrical activity in the human brain.

Most of my research has been the on the development of methods to estimate brain activity based on these measurements and the verification that these methods work through simulation, or comparison with what we know about brain anatomy and function from techniques such as MRI and fMRI and direct invasive recordings from the cortical surface.

The main aim of my work, and the goal of most MEG researchers, is to provide a millisecond by millisecond picture of the electrical activity changes in the human brain.

Teaching Summary

Most of my teaching is in MEG methods and statistics.
