Lecturer in Psychology: Human Behaviour (SSAP)
My research can be divided into two main streams: 1) Basic Research and 2) Clinical Research. My basic research addresses fundamental questions in Cognitive Neuroscience including the neural correlates of consciousness, multisensory integration, object recognition, and social cognition. My work pushes the boundaries of what can be learned from current human brain imaging techniques by applying machine-learning to the analysis of ultra-high-resolution fMRI data. My clinical research targets the translation of novel Cognitive Neuroscience methods to understand Mental Illness. In particular, my work is motivated by the proposal that deficits in perceptual processing lie at the core of hallucinations and delusions in schizophrenia. I have received competitive research funding from in Australia and Germany to test this hypothesis.
