I am a third year PhD student and Associate Lecturer, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and supervised by Dr Michael Banissy. The main focus of my thesis is on the neurocognitive basis of synaesthesia and its implications for social cognition and cross-modal interactions in perception. In my research I implement electrophysiological techniques, non-invasive brain stimulation, and psychophysics.
