The main focus of my research is early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease using computational modeling of combined TMS-EEG. I compare key measures of cortical excitability, connectivity, and plasticity in health and disease in order to discover early bio-markers for cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s disease patients. I use a variety of statistical and computational methods including biophysical modeling and graph theory.

I am a research officer at the lab of Prof. Mike Ridding. I quantitatively analyse non-invasive brain stimulation and electroencephalogram data in human subjects. My current research projects includes:

- The association of resting state functional connectivity with plasticity response to non-invasive brain stimulation.

- Characterising changes in cortical connectivity following application of non-invasive brain stimulation.
