I am a neuroscientist interested in visual perception. During my undergraduate degree in Physiological Sciences at Oxford University, I quickly realized it was the brain that most fascinated me.

I continued at Oxford with a DPhil on how ordered maps and projections are formed during brain development. I am currently a Royal Society University Research Fellow at Oxford University and a Tutorial Fellow at Oriel College.

Research interests

I have been investigating how brain cells give rise to visual perception. I try to find out which parts of the brain can contribute to what we see and also why the same brain cells can sometimes carry signals we are not aware of.
