The following people constitute the Editorial Board of Academic Editors for PeerJ. These active academics are the Editors who seek peer reviewers, evaluate their responses, and make editorial decisions on each submission to the journal. We will continue to add to the board of Academic Editors and are seeking qualified and diverse academics who share our vision.

After completing my training as a physician, I enrolled in a Ph.D. program to become a biomedical researcher. My doctoral training, in the broad field of biochemistry, and cell and molecular biology, focused on mechanisms of glycosylation, which is altered in diseases such as cancer and neuromuscular dystrophy. My current research focus is on microRNAs, tumor micro-environment and RNA editing.

The lab investigates how we experience, simulate, understand and remember information from the world around us. More specifically we investigate the phenomenology, mechanisms and neural basis of mental imagery, working memory, decision-making, visual perception, learning and the clinical applications for all these processes. We currently utilise behavioural methods, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), all with human subjects.
