I'm a research group leader, working mainly on the neuroscience of virtual reality interactions, and applications of neurotechnologies in neurorehabilitation. I also coordinate IP and tech transfer for the Institute. This work has led me to co-found a number of spin-offs in neurorehabilitation (YouRehab), neuromorphic engineering (iniLabs, aiCTX) and mobile behavioural data analytics (QuantActions).
