Profile

Biography

My research interests and activities cover attention, multisensory perception, visual feature integration, decision making, brain-computer interfaces and memory. Since 2002, I work at the University of Essex, where I am part of the Brain-Computer Interface and Neural Engineering group. Here I investigate decision making and collaborative BCI, based on EEG and other physiological measures, and multisensory integration.

Qualifications

  • PhD University of Birmingham
