I seek to find answers to difficult questions about the human brain and mind. How can we model and modulate neural mechanisms to affect cognition and subjective experience? Can we build reliable models to understand and predict human thought, experience, & behavior? It is my belief that we must combine approaches such as neuroimaging and computation to best improve trajectories and optimize outcomes.

LATEST RESEARCH

As a Post-baccalaureate Research Fellow in this neuroscience lab, I work with a team of scientists to understand the neural mechanisms of pain and expectancy in the brain. 

In this cognitive neuroscience lab, I completed my senior honors thesis on the dissociability of negative feedback theta and positive feedback beta rhythms during reinforcement learning.
