Academic interests

My research inspiration and interests are in the following fields:

  • Brain plasticity: where, how and when: what is the timing of plasticity mechanisms, especially for short-term plasticity mechanisms.

  • Visual attention, learning and cognitive functioning in the life span.

  • Concurrent pupillometry and EEG under various cognitive tasks.

  • Brain rhythms.

  • Brain functional and effective connectivity studied with the EEG.

  • How mathematical models and signal processing analysis methods can help us to understand brain functioning and physiology

I have worked on both experimentation and analysis for the EEG for many years. I am working as a postdoc at Thomas Espeseth’s Cognitive NeuroGenetics Lab, on delineating attention and learning mechanisms under various cognitive paradigms.

In August 2015 I installed a new EEG system for Cognitive NeuroGenetics Lab.
