I am a Lecturer at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. I hold a secondary affiliation to the Institute of Neuroscience at Newcastle University.
My research is in the emerging and highly interdisciplinary area of biomedical engineering. In my research I use principles of statistical and intelligent signal processing to understand how the brain learns and controls hand movement. One particular area of work is the design of brain-machine interface architectures to restore movement after amputation or injury to the spinal cord.
