I am a postdoctoral researcher at Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science, University of Sussex, UK, working with Prof Hugo Critchley and Prof Sarah Garfinkle. I completed my PhD at the University of York, UK, with Prof Jonny Smallwood.
My research involves the application of machine learning bridging neuroimaging measures and complex traits such as intelligence and clinical diagnosis. My current research concerns the patterns of functional whole-brain neural hierarchy and its relationship with ongoing thought and other high-level cognitive functions. I specialise in multivariate analysis, such as variations of canonical correlation analysis and principal component analysis. I hope to further examine the population level cognitive traits uncovered in large neuroscience datasets at the individual level.
I am pretty good at learning tools to make my research more reproducible. I have several attempts to write some useful packages but overall was not very successful.
When I am not doing research, I spend a lot of time optimising my Sunday roast recipe. I am a recreational Olympic weightlifter but never intended to compete. I am very passionate about bike commuting and following traffic rules. I like video games and TRPG. Right now I am trying to find a campaign that allows me to go to bed early. I used to sing a lot but gave it up in my early 20s. Now I am trying to pick that back up.
