Profile

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Cognitive Sciences and an Associate Investigator of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders (CCD) at Macquarie University.
I received my graduate training at the University of Minnesota under the direction of Professor Sheng He and Professor Paul Schrater. My dissertation research investigated the neural correlates of conscious object perception, which included the early development of multivariate pattern analysis ("decoding") methods for fMRI. I completed a 3 year postdoc jointly appointed at The University of Utrecht and Harvard University working with Professor Frans Verstraten and Professor Patrick Cavanagh, where I studied spatial limits of visual attention and the neural mechanisms of object perception.

My current research focuses on uncovering the brain mechanisms that support our ability to recognise objects, and the brain mechanisms that support assimilation of objects into the brain’s representation of the body for action (i.e. tool use). This research uses psychophysical methods and human neuroimaging methods to study how the brain represents information at different stages of visual processing, and how these representations relate to behavior. I also maintain an active interest in developing multivariate pattern classification methods to analyse human brain recording data, in particular for fMRI and MEG.
