I completed an Honors Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Toronto before moving to Cambridge to begin a PhD in Psychology under the supervision of Dr Jon Simons and Dr Rik Henson. My current research investigates the underlying causes of age-related decline in recollection using a combination of behavioural experiments and multivariate analysis of functional neuroimaging data.

Research Interests

I am interested in exploring the intricate link between memory, attention, and perception, and taking this unified approach to understanding the neural basis of episodic memory and how it is affected by healthy aging and dementia.
