I am currently a Data Scientist for Newham Council, working across a diverse range of projects to improve council services, identify fraud and generate opportunities for new income. 

Previously, I completed my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Marty Sereno at Birkbeck-UCL centre for Neuroimaging. My research was focussed on better understanding the neural basis of comprehension. What are the general computations realised by the brain to make sense of the world around us? What role does specific modalities play in comprehension and learning? Does linguistic comprehension rely on distinct neural substrates? The research was predominantly conducted using structural and functional neuroimaging.
