Current research

I conduct interdisciplinary research at the intersection of machine learning, cognitive neuroscience, and psychology. My goal is to develop bio-inspired artificial intelligence systems that explain biological neural function and disfunction. In particular, I am interested in how the brain processes, combines, and stores information from different sensory modalities, and how this information is then used to drive adaptive behaviours. To approach questions related to brain function, I employ a range of methods including deep learning, neuroimaging (EEG/fMRI/MRS), psychophysics, and eye tracking.
