I'm a Ph.D. student in the Department of Psychology at Stanford University, where I work with Anthony Wagner. I use behavioral, computational, and neuroimaging methods to study decision-making and cognitive control in humans.

Previously, I spent time in John Gabrieli's lab at MIT investigating the consequences of cognitive training. I did my undergrad at Amherst College, where I studied philosophy and neuroscience.

Complementing this research, I have developed a set of software libraries for statistical analysis and visualization. These libraries aim to make computationally-driven research more reproducible and improve the visual presentation of statistical and neuroimaging results.
