My discipline is cognitive neuroscience.

My research explores the neuro cognitive basis of how we self-generate thoughts such as those that occur during the resting state. I combine the tools of psychology (such as measures of experience or task performance) with the those of neuroscience (such as magnetic resonance imaging and pupilometry) with the aim of understanding the ontogeny of the resting state and its functional outcomes. We use statistical methods to identify categories of experience and explore the functional consequences that these have both in terms of how they relate to performance and to health and well-being.
