Biography

ARC Future Fellow

I am interested in the large-scale organization of the human nervous system. Using network analysis I try to combine experimental recordings with computational modelling and identify key principles that coordinate distributed activity in the brain and spinal cord. In the electrophysiology lab at the Black Dog Institute we nvestigate the effect of brain stimulation on brain functioning using EEG.
