B.A. (Hons.), M.Sc.
My DPhil research aims to help pioneer the emerging field of computational neuropsychiatry. I am specifically interested in how whole-brain computational connectomics can improve our understanding of the dynamical interactions and consequences of brain networks over many timescales.
This work is carried out under the supervision of Prof Morten Kringelbach and is generously funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Canadian Centennial Scholarship Fund (CCSF) and the Mann Senior Scholarship from Hertford College.
As part of my research, I use a variety of tools spanning: neuroimaging, network theory, computational modelling and complexity science, and collaborate with talented colleagues from various academic backgrounds and institutions across Europe. I am particularly interested in the balance between the integration and segregation of information at the whole-brain scale, and related disruptions in neuropsychiatric disorders and in the psychedelic state.
Before joining Oxford, I completed in B.A. in Neuroscience with Departmental Honors at Bowdoin College in the USA and a M.Sc. in Integrative Neuroscience with Distinction at Imperial College London. I also worked as a Research Associate in Psychiatric Neuroimaging at Harvard Medical School.
Outside of my doctoral studies I have a broad interest in translational medicine, and the complex interplay between academia, clinical care, business and technology. I also enjoy tennis, poker, electronic music and tea.
