I am also a Visiting Research Fellow Laboratory for Neural Computation and Adaptation at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Tokyo.


My research interests lie at the intersection between neuroscience and embodied artificial intelligence. Understanding how the nervous system gives rise to robust behaviour offers potential design solutions for systems that operate in dynamic and noisy environments. However, conversely, understanding the brain as a dynamic control system can help shed light on the neural circuits that underpin behaviour. My work combines  both computational and experimental approaches to address these issues.
