Personal profile

Research interests

My current research focuses on social and emotional decision making, particularly in the context of Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC), using a combination of fMRI, EEG, and computational modelling. For a short description of my current decision making research with Autistic individuals please watch the following video


I am also interested in task-free neuroimaging approaches (resting state fMRI) and developing novel methodologies to help translate and compare brain connectivity patterns in animals, typically developing individuals, and clinical populations.
