Research interests

I am a third year PhD Student in the Computational and Biological Learning Lab, supervised by Daniel Wolpert. I research the computational processes that underlie motor learning in humans, and try to understand how the representations of motor memories impact learning and enable skilled voluntary movement. I am also interested in artificial learning systems.

I am supported by a Cambridge-Rutherford Memorial Scholarship, administered by the Royal Society of New Zealand. I am also a current Benefactor's Scholar of St John's College, Cambridge.
