I’m a neuroscientist in the Department of Psychological Sciences, Birkbeck, University of London, and associated¬†researcher at UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and NIMH/NIH.

Currently trying to answer questions about

I’m delighted and humbled to have been awarded an Early Career Fellowship from the Leverhulme Trust¬†that will fund a 3-year project on the neural coding of auditory concepts.
