About

I recently completed my PhD at the Queensland Brain Institute (supervised by Jason Mattingley and Marta Garrido), which used computational modelling and machine learning analyses of human brain imaging data (EEG and MEG) to investigate how predictions bias attention and visual awareness.

I'm also passionate about using the principles of Open Science to create a fair and efficient system of scholarly communication. To help achieve this, I founded Project Free Our Knowledge.
