My current research examines how the brain controls coordinated movements, and which structures in the brain contribute to the improvement and adaptation of movements during motor learning. My PhD thesis examined how observing the actions of others can modulate the activity of the human motor system.
After completing my PhD thesis in 2010, I moved to Chris Miall's PRISM lab and have been working there since as a Postdoctoral research fellow.
