The aim of my research is to understand self-organisation in biological systems. To date this has involved constructing theoretical, computational, experimental, and robotic models of the development of brain function. I am particularly interested in how the brain learns to represent physical spaces such as that occupied by the body. Please follow the link to my personal website for up-to-date information.
