How does the brain generate consciousness? How does the physical matter of the brain produce the sensation of 'redness', the experience of smelling a rose, or the feeling of happiness? This question remains one of the most puzzling questions of modern science and my PhD project aims to investigate the neural basis of consciousness using visual experiments alongside neural recordings and computational modelling. Outside of the lab, you can find me cooking, exploring the restaurants of Melbourne, or playing guitar.
