I'm a postdoctoral researcher in the Center for Neural Science at New York University, where I work with Roozbeh Kiani. I use behavioral, computational, and neuroimaging methods to study decision-making and cognitive control in humans.

I recevied my PhD from Stanford University working with Anthony Wagner. My thesis focused on the functional organization of cogntive control systems in the human brain. Prior to grad school, I was a research assistant in John Gabrieli's lab at MIT. I received my undergraduate degree from Amherst College, where I studied philosophy and neuroscience.

In addition to research, I have developed several open-source software libraries for data analysis and visualization.
