Biography

I received a B.Sc. (hons) and M.Sc. in Behavioural Neuroscience (Psychology) from Memorial University of Newfoundland. I received a Doc. rer. nat. (Ph.D. equivalent) from Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf, Germany -- having spent most of my time at Radboud University, Nijmegen, the Netherlands. I subsequently had postdoctoral fellowships at: the Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University, Canada; Jülich Research Center, Germany; and Radboud University, Nijmegen. In January 2018, I joined the School of Psychology here in Nottingham as Assistant Professor.

Current Research

My present research focus is on the involvement of the locus coeruleus / noradrenergic system (LC/NE) in the modulation of cognitive functions, including decision making, utility assessment, and adaptive behaviour. To study this, I combine a continuous highway driving simulation task with eye tracking and neuroimaging approaches (EEG, MEG, or fMRI).

I am also interested in the neurodegenerative processes underlying healthy aging and Alzheimer's-type dementia. In particular, Alzheimer's-related pathology has been linked to the LC/NE system early in life, and this suggests that understanding the function of this system in cognition can also help us understand -- and develop therapies to target -- the processes underlying neurodegeneration and cognitive decline.

My research also has a strong methodological basis, and I have developed methods for estimating brain connectivity from neuroimaging approaches. In particular, I am interested in ways to integrate information across multiple modalities, such as structural (DWI, sMRI), functional (EEG, MEG, fMRI), and meta-analytic (BrainMap.org, Neuovault.org, CoCoMac.org) approaches.
