Graduate Student

While completing my H.B.Sc in neuroscience at the University of Toronto, I performed independent research with Dr Evelyn Lambe. My undergraduate research focused on the behavioural and neurophysiological consequences of chronic social isolation. I then moved to the University of Oxford to complete an MSc in Neuroscience. This included a short research project in the Johansen-Berg group during which I investigated plasticity in the human brain. 

I am now working in the Packer and Butt groups, investigating the functional significance of the claustrum. By combining in vivo two-photon calcium imaging with cognitively demanding behavioural assays, I hope to understand the behavioural relevance of this enigmatic brain region.
