Personal profile

Research interests

I am an experimental psychologist and cognitive neuroscientist using a combination of human behavioural testing and functional neuroimaging. The focus of my research in the last years has been on how sensory information is coded in memory to support effective navigation. In a series of pioneering studies, I identified several key regions and mechanisms underlying spatial navigation in humans, which have previously been explored almost exclusively in rodents.

In addition, I have led research projects on human perception, affect, eye movements, speech recognition, stroke, self-motion perception, and non-motor functions of the cerebellum.

I joined the Interdisciplinary Centre for the Artificial Mind at Bond University to investigate human-artificial environment interaction with the aim to provide preventive solutions for human health disorders, and explore treatments of neurological diseases
