I am a Senior Research Fellow at the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging at UCL. I develop methods for investigating the function and circuitry of the human brain, and I use these methods to investigate vision, memory and imagination.

Methods development

I am a developer of SPM, the open source software package for analysing neuroimaging data. In particular, I work on Dynamic Causal Modelling (DCM) for fMRI, a technology which lets people investigate brain circuitry. I am situated in the Methods Group, headed by Professor Karl Friston.

Cognitive neuroscience

My neurobiological interest is how the brain constructs a model of the world based on what we see. In particular, I am interested in the functional anatomy of the hippocampus - a brain structure critical for memory and imagination. See selected Publications.
