Biography

My research aims to advance both our basic understanding of human brain function and brain dysfunction through the development, application, and translation of innovative neuroscientific methods. I combine visual psychophysics and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI and MR-Spectroscopy) to investigate the neural basis of conscious visual perception and the brain mechanisms underlying altered states of consciousness, such as those experienced in psychosis (e.g., hallucinations and delusions). Recently, my interests have extended to the field of neurolaw, where I aim to examine the degree to which the Australian system of criminal justice is compatible with the lessons of modern neuroscience.
