Current research

I am interested in the relationship between attention and our conscious experience. This is an important area of research because attention and consciousness are essential to successfully navigate and interact with our environment. To investigate this relationship I employ methods, such as electroencephalogram (EEG), to investigate brain activity and masking techniques, such as continuous flash suppression (CFS), to render visual stimuli invisible.


Research interests
  • Attention
  • Consciousness
  • Electrophysiological recording
