Hi there. I am a PhD student in Psychology & Neuroscience at Duke University who came in through the Cognitive Neuroscience Admitting Program (CNAP). I'm working with Elizabeth Marsh, Felipe De Brigard, and Roberto Cabeza to study questions relating to memory, imagining, and education.
I am a graduate of the University of Southern California with degrees in neuroscience (B.S.) and Interdisciplinary Studies (B.A.). I worked with Dr. Michael Arbib conducting research in psycholinguistics. I wrote my undergraduate thesis on literature in the brain.
In 2009, I started the USC branch of Interaxon, a student organization which presents dynamic neuroscience lessons to K-12 schools in South LA. After graduating from USC, I taught high school science in Los Angeles for three years at PUC through Teach for America. I'm a fan of octopuses and board games!
