Welcome to my website! I am a Sir Henry Wellcome fellow on the MRC Programme Leader Track at the CBU and a Bye-Fellow at Fitzwilliam College, University of Cambridge. I study the rise and fall of executive functions across the lifespan by relating brain function, brain structure and cognition in developing populations using multivariate modeling techniques. Specifically, I use a variety of structural equation models to capture the changing relationship between mind and brain across lifetime. To do so, I collaborate with the Cam-CAN project in Cambridge, the NSPN project in London and Cambridge and the Berling Ageing study. My particular interests are in models that effectively capture how cognitive changes across lifetime relate to brain reorganization, adaptation and compensation, with the ultimate goal of increasing healthy cognitive ageing in older populations.
