My research background lies at the interface between psychophysics and EEG, with a broad interest in understanding the neural basis of consciousness. During my PhD I investigated whether the effects of attention could be dissociated from the overlapping contents of consciousness. For example, do you think you are aware of everything you pay attention to? Using visual, auditory, and tactile stimulation paradigms, I found evidence to suggest that our focus of attention and the contents of consciousness may not be one and the same.

Here at the ACClab, I'm joining a large multi-disciplinary and multi-site effort to improve the efficacy of human-machine teaming, specifically human and AI collaboration during difficult decisions. I'll be establishing the neural correlates of decision confidence in a range of visual and crossmodal tasks, using EEG and other methods.
