Research Interests

I am a Clinical Research Fellow and Specialist Registrar in Clinical Neurology, working in the University Neurology Unit under the supervision of Professor James B. Rowe.

I am interested in defining perceptual mechanisms and brain substrates through the general application of auditory psychophysics to patients with neurological pathology. My work is complemented by the use of functional imaging modalities such as magnetoencephalography and ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging.

My present focus is on brain mechanisms for prediction, language and learning in patients who neurodegenerative disease, and especially the neurodegenerative aphasias. My other interests include the exploration of perceptual timing in normal listeners and in patients with cortical and subcortical disease, as well as brain mechanisms for musical hallucination and tinnitus. I am always willing to discuss collaboration in these areas.
