Areas of expertise My research is primarily concerned with neurophysiological correlates of human cognition, and issues associated with localisation of cognitive function. Recent work has focused upon brain mechanisms underlying autobiographical memory. In addition, I am interested in developing new mathematical and computational techniques for analysing brain activity. This research is currently focused upon the problem of measuring cognitive workload and fatigue.
