I am a cognitive neuroscientist with a background in using EEG to measure various neuropsychological phenomena, such as the role of dopamine in attentional processes, the effects of high geographical altitude on the brain, and more recently, the processing of affective touch. I am currently working on investigating how we are touched by both humans and robotic devices, including the role of context and multisensory integration. I am drawing on my experience in combining behavioural and brain imaging techniques to improve our understanding of the neuropsychology of social touch. In doing so we hope to improve digital touch experiences that deliver affective touch.
