About

I’m a neuroscientist, studying the human brain. Through advanced data analysis of brain imaging data (EEG, MEG, fMRI) I try to understand how our brain performs complex cognitive tasks. Currently, my research focuses on language comprehension: “how does our brain recognize speech, words and pictures in an instant?” Most of the time, I'm working on problems in the form of "extract evidence of process X happening in the brain from signal Y". Preferably, "process X" is something concrete that we are pretty sure must be happening and "signal Y" is data collected during a well thought-out experiment designed to elicit the process. My analysis methods currently include many types of linear models (multivariate regression, SVMs, beamformers, etc.), representational similarity analysis (RSA) and functional connectivity analysis. As a proponent of open science, I always strive to publish my analysis pipelines, as well as contribute to various larger open source efforts, such as MNE-Python.
