- Curriculum Vitae
BiographyI'm a research scientist at the Centre for Neuroscience Studies, Queen's University, Canada, where I work with Gunnar Blohm in the Computational Neuroscience Lab and Martin Pare in the Visual Information Processing 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 how the cerebral cortex supports cognition. I pursue this interest by investigating executive control, decision-making, memory and timing.
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 Andrea Pirlo, though he's better on the dribble than the Italian maestro. He plays for Kingston Clippers Soccer Club in Ontario's East Regional Soccer League. Henry's also an upstanding citizen. Madeleine counts painting, guitar, soccer, basketball and animals among her areas of expertise. She's very well socialised. Maddy plays soccer for the Clippers U13 Girls team, which I coach. She plays a lot like Gerrard Pique, though she's quicker than he is. Theo's just four years old. 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 tech guru at the Faculty of Education.
