Hi, I am a computational cognitive neuroscientist in training. I am currently working in the Huth Lab at UT Austin. Here you can find all my recent work. 

As of Fall 2020, I will be a graduate student in the Hellen Wills Neuroscience Institute at UC Berkeley.

Research Labs

June, 2018 - August, 2020

Research Assistant - Huth Lab

During my time in the Huth lab, I was responsible for all fMRI data collection and preprocessing. Additionally, I led various projects including studying language processing in early blind individuals and studying the contribution of the cerebellum to language processing. 

January, 2017 - June, 2018

Undergraduate Research Assistant - Charntikov Lab

In this lab I assisted on a series of projects using operant conditioning to study addiction in a rat model.

September, 2014 - June, 2018

Undergraduate Research Assistant - Stine Lab

In this lab I used psychophysical techniques to study motion induced blindness.
