I am an EPSRC funded PhD student based within the Living Systems Institute. My research focuses on developing mathematical and computational methods to analyse models of large scale brain dynamics. Specifically, I use methods from computational intelligence and evolutionary computation to optimise highly dimensional models to data. Applying these techniques by comparing healthy people to people that have epilepsy, I aim to improve the understanding of the mechanisms responsible for the generation of seizure activity.
