Biography

I attained my BSc in Psychology with Honours from the University of Toronto, Canada, and completed my MA and PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Rotman Research Institute, University of Toronto, under the supervision of Professors Cheryl Grady and Randy McIntosh. My PhD work focused on the neural underpinning of long-term memory. Consequently, I accepted a Postdoctoral position at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, where I began my work on neural plasticity due to healthy ageing and pathological neurodegeneration. In 2013, I was awarded an Early Career Research Grant by the Australian Research Council to continue my research on functional and structural brain plasticity at the Centre for Advanced Imaging, University of Queensland, Australia. In 2016, I joined Swansea University as Associate Professor in Psychology, and in 2020, I joined BU's Psychology Department as Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience.

Research

My primary research expertise is in cognitive neuroscience, using structural MRI (sMRI), functional MRI (fMRI), diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), and (magneto/electro)encephalography (MEG/EEG) to map the structural and functional brain alterations associated with lifespan changes and pathological neurodegeneration. Specifically, my research interests comprise the following investigations:

(i) Ageing & Neurodegeneration: investigation of brain plasticity associated with ageing, Alzheimer's dementia, and Parkinson's disease; (ii) Plasticity in Recovery: investigation of brain plasticity following post-stroke aphasia, epilepsy, or traumatic brain injury; (iii) Memory & Language: investigation of the neural correlates subserving the processes of long-term memory retrieval, working memory encoding & retrieval, and language production.
