I am a Senior Research Fellow at the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging at UCL. I lead the development of Dynamic Causal Modelling (DCM), a framework for investigating the function and circuitry of the human brain. I use this and other statistical methods to investigate vision and memory, particularly how these change due to neurological disorders.

Methods development

I am a developer of SPM, the open source software package for analysing neuroimaging data. In particular, I work on 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 and how this changes as we age. In particular, I am interested in the functional anatomy of the hippocampus - a brain structure critical for memory and imagination, which declines early in the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. See selected Publications.
