About me

I am a PhD candidate at the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics. My research focuses on the involvement of the brain in learning and adaptive behaviour, and how the dynamics of these processes change over time. I use several magnetic resonance and behavioural approaches to better understand human behaviour. I am also involved in the development of pyfMRIqc, an Open Source software package used for the quality assurance of functional magnetic resonance imaging data.

As well as exemplifying good open practice my research, I am an active advocate for Open Research within the field of neuroscience more generally. I am a founding member of the Reading chapter of the ReproducibiliTea journal club, and NeuroHack, a coding club with a focus on open neuroimaging skills. My main interests are in making neuroimaging more open through skills training, reproducible workflows, open data and open publishing.
