My principal research interests are in the areas of cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychology, with a particular focus on language processes and their breakdown in different disease states. My current research has a strong focus on understanding the complex structural and functional organisation of the brain, especially its neural connectivity, and how this relates to theories of normal cognitive functioning. This research also aims to gain new insights about the nature of impaired and recovered cognitive processes in patients with deficits following stroke, traumatic brain injury, and neurodegenerative disease.
