Personal profile

Research Interests

My current research interests are in the use of magnetoencephalography (MEG) to understand sensory processing in healthy development and in neurodevelopmental disorders.  I am also interested in the use of MEG in clinical disorders such as epilepsy.  The underlying theme which unites these topics is a desire to refine and apply physiological measurement methods for use in real-world clinical questions. My background is in psychophysics, a method to which I also often return.
