I am currently a research associate in the Active Touch Lab. I work with Dr Hannes Saal on modelling cortical somatotopic maps of the hand representation. My research focuses on modelling somatosensory cortex using dimensionality reduction techniques and self-organising models. I am interested in the mechanisms which determine the topography and magnification of the hand seen in the primary somatosensory cortex of both humans and non-human primates.
