Public Profile

My research employs various non-invasive brain stimulation (TMS, tES) and recording (EEG) techniques to characterise the neurophysiological determinants of cognitive function in healthy ageing and dementia. The overarching aim of this research is to provide new mechanistic insights into the roles of brain connectivity and plasticity in supporting late life cognitive health, with the potential to inform novel strategies for dementia prevention and therapy.
