In this research work we use the spiking activity of neurons in the human brain to estimate the timescales of information processing during different states of vigilance.
I am thrilled to start working in the Memory and Sleep Lab of Prof. Staresina at Oxford University. We will explore the mechanisms underlying memory consolidation using single unit recordings from the Medial Temporal Lobe (MTL) in humans.
In this paper we present possible solution to the problem that neural spikes are sometimes detected multiple times in human extracellular single unit recordings.
New paper on the neural basis of delay discounting using MEG and eye tracking.
How do we value rewards if we have to wait for them?
And do we act differently if we decide for ourselves or for our best friend?

New paper on the fascinating pulsar PSR J1909–3744 published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society:
This very well timed pulsar exhibits a highly eccentric orbit around the centre of our Galaxy. This pulsar was also one of the first astrophysical systems I have worked on. Find the link to the paper below:
We published a new article in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society in which we show that radio pulsars can help us understand the behaviour of matter at extremely high densities. Check out the link to the paper:
It was great to attend the Hertie Winter School 2016 on Memory mechanisms in humans in Obergurgl, Austria. It was an honour for me to receive the best poster award.

Great news! LIGO scientists were awarded the breakthrough prize of fundamental physics!
