Short CV: 

MA/Ph.D., 2011, Department of Psychology, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada.

BA (Honours, Co-op, with Distinction), 2003, Department of Psychology, University of Victoria, Victoria, BC, Canada. 

Project participation: 

Research Interests: 

As leader of the Lifespan Neural Dynamics Group (LNDG) within the Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research, my interests center on the examination of EEG/fMRI brain signal variability and dynamics in relation to lifespan development, cognition, neurochemistry, network dynamics, and brain structure. Accordingly, I have an inherent multivariate methods focus that allows the examination of brain signal variability phenomena across multiple levels of analysis. The LNDG is also funded by a recent Emmy Noether Programme grant from the DFG (2017-2021).
