I gained my Ph.D. at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience in the research group of Neil Burgess and John O'Keefe. After post-doctoral fellowships at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in Cambridge (with Kim Graham) and the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuro-imaging (with Eleanor Maguire) I was awarded a Wellcome Trust Advanced Training Fellowship to learn single unit recording. I now employ cognitive and behavioural neuroscience techniques in my laboratory to study the neural basis of spatial cognition.

Research Summary

I am interested in how our brain constructs representations of the world and uses them to navigate, imagine the future and remember the past. I use brain imaging, neuropsychological testing, virtual reality, eye-tracking and single cell recording as methods to understand brain function and spatial cognition.
