Cognitive Neuropsychology of Attention

My main theoretical question is how we form temporal expectations in response to patterns in our environment, and how we adjust our behaviour accordingly. In particular, I am interested in learning how our ability to predict things may alter our arousal level and our overall sensitivity to the environment.

I have completed my DPhil at the Cognitive Neuropsychology Centre (Oxford), where I studied the temporal fluctuations of attention after brain injuries. I am currently working with Professor Kia Nobre on understanding the interplay between temporal expectations, attention, and other cognitive mechanisms as memory and perception. 

In addition to my main body of work, I am interested in various aspects of cognitive sciences:  language, memory, consciousness, philosophy and the interactions between neuropsychology and education.
