After completing my Honours BSc in Psychological and Health Sciences at the University of Toronto, I moved to Cambridge to pursue my PhD in Clinical Neurosciences under the supervision of Professor Hugh Markus. My interests lie in investigating the functional and neuroanatomical correlates of symptoms that are common across many psychiatric and neurological diseases. I have a particular interest in pathological changes to learning and memory, reward processing, and motivation – these are fundamental psychological processes that are essential to maintaining a high quality of life. For my PhD I will be investigating the neural basis of apathy in cerebral small vessel disease using a variety of quantitative imaging techniques, such as diffusion-weighted MR tractography.
