Personal profile

Research interests

I am broadly interested in the neurobiological underpinnings of cognitive flexility. A primary research interest of mine is the role of the dopaminergic system in determining flexible-like behaviour. 

To answer these questions. I have worked in both animal models and conducted studies in humans using a variety of methodological approaches include single-neuron extracellular recording in rodents, optogenetics, recording of electrodermal activity (EDA), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and cognitive testing.
