  • 25-May-2021: If you love statistics, you ought to love this paper!
  • 25-May-2021: Reviewing, reviewing, reviewing... Service is an important part of our duties, but this month and a half has been a bit of a killer... My Publons indicate an all-time record number of reviews! Anyway, going back to normal now...
  • 12-Mar-2021 (Publications): Congratulations to Michelle on the acceptance of your abstract on 2021 OSA Biophotonics Congress: Optics in the Life Sciences! And you got an oral presentation! Excellent work!
  • 8-Mar-2021 (Publications): And yet another journal paper this year! Congratulations Tony and all the group from Prof. Mari Franceschini on the acceptance of your paper on JBO! I truly learn a lot from you guys every single day.

Research Interests

My research interests are data analysis and interpretation of neuroimages; mostly optical neuroimaging (fNIRS) but also to a smaller extent EEG and fMRI.

This involves multidisciplinary research from computing (mainly), mathematics and statistics, and a bit of physics (optics) and neuroscience. Whether you are a student looking for a thesis topic or a researcher interested in collaborating, please have a look at my research.
