DPhil student

Bio

I am a DPhil student supervised by Professors Mark Woolrich and Jacinta O’Shea. I am studying prism adaptation, a treatment for a disorder of visual perception known as hemineglect, in which patients lose awareness of part of their visual field. For my research, I am applying Professor Woolrich’s machine learning techniques to analyze changes in brain dynamics that occur during prism adaptation. Later on in my DPhil, I may use the same analysis techniques to study the effect of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on prism adaptation, which has previously been shown to enhance the after-effects of adaptation.

Prior to commencing my DPhil, I graduated with a B.A. in neuroscience from Harvard University. As an undergraduate, I interned at the Qualia Research Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to discovering the science of consciousness. I am passionate about the interdisciplinary study of consciousness and hope that my research on hemineglect will lay a foundation for future research on this topic.
