In a Nutshell

We are interested in the human memory, large-scale brain networks, and how they change across the lifespan.

The Full Story

I am currently working at the University of Nottingham (School of Psychology). The main goal of my research is to understand the neurocognitive mechanisms that shape our memories, and how they change throughout the lifespan. To achieve this goal, I use a variety of behavioural methods, neuroimaging methods (including EEG, MEG and fMRI), and analytical methods. I conduct controlled experiments, and also interrogate large scale datasets, and in particular the population-based lifespan cohort at the Cambridge Centre for Ageing and Neurosciences (Cam-CAN). 


Before I joined the University of Nottingham, I worked in Cambridge as a Research Fellow and then as a Senior Research Associate with Prof. Rik Henson at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, funded by a Postdoctoral British Academy Fellowship and Newton International Fellowship (by the Royal Society). Prior to that, I completed a postdoc at Reichman University with Prof. Daniel Levy, and a PhD at Bar Ilan University with Prof. Avi Goldstein and Prof. Eli Vakil, where I investigated how different encoding mechanisms produce qualitative changes to remembering.

And then some... 

Aside from my research, I enjoy traveling (when there's no COVID), sleep (when I can), and engage in crafty stuff. But most of all, I enjoy goofing around with my kids (aka: "The Trolls"). That, and Netflix.
