About me

I'm a cognitive neuroscientist and psychologist. I currently research how pre-stimulus brain activity influences perception. I use electroencephalography (EEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging(fMRI), and transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS).

Since January 2018, I’ve been a lecturer in the School of Psychology at the University of Lincoln, UK, where I teach research methods and statistics using R. Before that, I was a post-doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Leeds, UK.

More on reaction times

I previously replicated some simulations from a journal article by Ratcliff (1993) 1. These sims demonstrate that transformations such …
