Biography

My Website

I'm a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Cognitive Science. I'm interested in self representation, in particular how we monitor our feelings of control over our actions (sense of agency) and how we track our bodies in space (body representation). My research focuses on developing better measures of self representation and investigating how this capacity is altered in different contexts, clinical conditions and states of consciousness.
