Summary

I am interested in how our experiences shape our developing brains, and I have been integrating theoretical, computational, behavioural, and robotic models of sensory processing in the context of tactile sensing. For my PhD I investigated the extent to which self-organising networks can explain how the somatosensory cortex learns to represent inputs from the body. As a research fellow, I piloted a novel neuroscientific approach, exploring cortical map self-organisation driven by the multi-sensory experiences of a synthetic rodent littermate. I am now a Lecturer in Cognitive Neuroscience.
