    Collapse Overview
    I am a cognitive neuroscientist with a primary interest in using neuroimaging to investigate the
    biological bases of language processing, particularly the etiology of language dysfunction in neurodevelopmental disorders. My interdisciplinary training has been in computational methods, psycholinguistics and neuroimaging. I have expertise in software development, project management, magneto/electroencephalography and functional, structural and spectroscopic magnetic resonance imaging. My recent work has
    focused on the e ects of neurochemistry on the neural dynamics of speech and auditory processing.
