In my work as a cognitive neuroscientist, I use computational, imaging, and psychopharmacological methods to better understand the brain basis of how we build beliefs about ourselves and others, in health and disorder.
I believe that a clear framework for how we represent others and ourselves in the mind will not only improve understanding and treatment for psychiatric disorders but also will provide deeper insights into the social basis of the human brain.
I currently hold an appointment as Assistant Professor/ Lecturer at Royal Holloway, University of London where I lead the Social Computation and Cognitive Representation (SoCCR) lab, as well as holding an honorary research position at King’s College London (KCL).
My work and public outreach have been funded and recognised by several major funding and scientific bodies such as the Wellcome Trust, British Association of Psychopharmacology (BAP), Schizophrenia International Research Society (SIRS), and Medical Research Council (MRC).
You can find code libraries and software I have developed/assisted to develop for scientific purposes here. This includes open data from my past scientific work.
