I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow in Cognitive Psychology and Brain Science at the Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre, and a member of the Selective Attention & Awareness Laboratory (SAAL) directed by Dr Jason Braithwaite. My current research is to investigate the brain mechanisms of cortical hyperexcitability and the out-of-body experiences in non-clinical populations, supported by the Leverhulme Trust. The project employs diverse techniques, including psychophysiological measurements (electrodermal activity/skin conductance responses, body temperature, facial EMG activities) and brain stimulation (transcranial direct-current stimulation: tDCS).
