Cambridge Language Sciences

Interdisciplinary Research Centre


My research interests include language comprehension, cognitive and affective control, human-computer interaction and cognitive neuropsychiatry. I develop and apply several cutting-edge technologies such as real-time functional MRI, multivariate pattern analysis for MEG/EEG, and computational modelling in systems and cognitive neuroscience.

My research interest outside language science is neuroimaging and computational modelling in dementia.
