My research centres on modulating and measuring neural activity. I have a particular interest in plasticity and how our brains adapt and develop as part of the ageing process. Through the use of behavioural paradigms, neuroimaging techniques and brain stimulation methods, I aim to investigate age-related changes within specific brain regions and diffuse neural networks in both health and disease.
