Research overview

I am passionate about speech, ears, brainstems, and brains. I currently work on establishing how motor brain areas work in concert with auditory regions to assist speech perception under challenging listening conditions, along with my collaborators Dr Patti Adank and Dr Joe Devin (UCL). I study this question using several reseach methods: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), which I combine with behaviour and neurophysiology, as well as electroencephalography (EEG). I also teach TMS on the international TMS Workshop for Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL (www.tms-workshop.org). In my PhD, I looked at how speech is represented in the subcortical auditory system using EEG, and how the subcortical representation of speech is modulated by peripheral and cortical influences. I am currently working on combining TMS with EEG to study temporal integration during auditory-motor connectivity when listening to speech in noisy environments. 


I am also an Honorary Lecturer at UCL.
