I am interested in the cognitive neuroscience of executive functions, particularly the cognitive and neuroanatomical bases of multitasking (e.g. task switching, dual-task performance, prospective memory), and their relationship with social cognition. To investigate these issues I use behavioural, computational modelling, functional neuroimaging and neuropsychological approaches.
