I have worked as a researcher in several different countries including Canada (the University of British Columbia), the United States (The University of California, Santa Barbara) and Germany (Max Plank Institute of Cognitive Science).
Understanding the cognitive neuroscience of self-generated thought.
I use the tools of cognitive neuroscience to understand how the brain produces experiences that do not arise directly from immediate perceptual input. We study naturally occurring examples of these phenomena (experiences such as daydreaming and mind-wandering) as well as with tasks that mimic these states. We use EEG, MEG, fMRI and TMS to understand these experiences.
