DPhil Student

I am a DPhil Student in the Physiological Neuroimaging Group, supervised by Dr Charlotte Stagg and Dr Melanie Fleming.

My research focuses on how we learn motor skills, and if patients who have suffered a stroke learn motor skills in the same way as healthy controls.  I use a mixture of non-invasive imaging and recording techniques to study this, including MRI (structural, functional imaging) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS).

I am also interested in how non-invasive brain stimulation techniques such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) affects learning, and if this changes the mechanisms of learning in healthy subjects and patient populations.

Prior to beginning my DPhil, I worked as a research assistant in the same group assisting with multiple projects.  I am trained in the use of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques (TMS, tDCS and tACS) including in combination with concurrent MRI.
