About

I'm a cognitive neuroscience PhD student at the Queensland Brain Institute, interested in the neural mechanisms of consciousness. I'm currently in the final year of my PhD (supervised by Jason Mattingley and Marta Garrido), using computational modelling and multivariate 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.
