Our brains are simultaneously tasked with acting in the present while predicting and preparing for the future. I am interested in understanding how we prepare and optimize neural systems for control-demanding goals in the near- or more distant- future. I use EEG and MEG to investigate the sub-second, oscillatory mechanisms facilitating the proactive computation, communication, and maintenance of future goals. By understanding how goal-directed preparation is initiated and unfolds over time, I aim to gain further insight into the dynamics of top-down brain state transitions.
