I am a mathematics PhD student working under the supervision of Dr James Rankin, and Prof Peter Ashwin. My PhD project investigates the neural dynamics of perceptual competition. I am interested in neural mechanisms and dynamics that contribute to the perception of ambiguous sensory information. I am using mathematical modeling and tools from bifurcation analysis, together with human perceptual experiments to understand underlying mechanisms of perceptual rivalry across different modalities.
