I have been working in neuroscience since the second year of my undergraduate degree, when I was awarded a Wellcome Trust scholarship to study a project over the summer. I continued this into my dissertation and then later onto postgraduate work, which I left in the summer of 2011. From this work, a publication in the Journal of Neurophysiology was produced, and I gained a great deal of experience in the use of in vivo electrophysiology and data analysis techniques using MATLAB and NeuroExplorer. I am currently working in the NHS and am actively seeking a PhD position in either electrophysiology or fMRI/EEG in humans.
