- Curriculum Vitae
DS 2013.02.07 - I'm a postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for Neuroscience Studies, Queen's University, Canada, where I work with Mike Dorris in the Laboratory for the Neural Basis of Decision Making and with Gunnar Blohm in the Computational Neuroscience Lab. Both labs are in the Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences. I completed my PhD at the Faculty of Computer Science, Dalhousie University, Canada, in August 2007, where I was a member of the Computational Neuroscience Group with Thomas Trappenberg. Most generally, I'm interested in cortical and hippocampal function. I pursue these interests through the study of decision-making, interval timing, executive control and memory.
As for my personal life, I've got three kids, Henry, Madeleine and Theodore, and my wife's name is Selina. They're very nice people. Henry's a soccer star in the mould of Andres Iniesta, or perhaps his favourite player, English phenom Wayne Rooney. He plays for Kingston United Soccer Club in Ontario's East Regional Soccer League. Henry's also an upstanding citizen. Madeleine counts painting, guitar, soccer and animals among her areas of expertise. She's very well socialised. Maddy plays soccer for the Cataraqui Clippers U12 Girls team, which I coach. She plays a lot like Gerrard Pique, though she's quicker than he is. Theo's very young, born March 7, 2011. He's a force of nature and a happy kid. Selina's a successful web designer, a former pop star of sorts, a graduate of the London College of Fashion and has an unrivalled and infectious pop sensibility. Like me, Sel works at Queen's. She's a web guru at the Faculty of Education.
