I carried my first DSLR camera in 2011 and my view of the world has been changing since. Initially I was obsessed with sunsets, but with time I found myself repeatedly trying to capture natural motion and the dynamics of landscapes and cityscapes.

Photography is the passion I pursue 'on the side'. I am a full-time neuroscience researcher investigating brain networks that support visual learning. I remember when I first read a book chapter about vision, I told myself: "this is so intriguing but I don't think I'd ever want to work in the field".

I had the chance to combine my love for cameras and brains when, for a collaborative project, I photographed a 3D-printed model of a language pathway in the human brain and the photo was selected as one of the winners at the Wellcome Image Awards 2017 competition.

This website which I only recently launched, represents my passion for the visual medium. I hope it brings you as much joy as it brings me.
