I am a post-doc working at CFIN (Center of Functionally Integrative Neuroscience) at Aarhus University, Denmark and I am a fellow at the Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies (AIAS). I'm interested in anything related to magnetoencephalography (MEG), but sensory expectations, consciousness, cerebellar MEG and on-scalp MEG must be highlighted among my interests. I have also worked and published on on-scalp MEG and machine learning. Finally, I take a keen interest in coding using language such as MATLAB, Python and R and have published tutorial papers on how to do MEG analysis in FieldTrip and MNE-Python.
