I am currently a PhD student studying Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh and the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC). All my research is done across the street in the CoAx Lab at Carnegie Mellon, where I work alongside all these fine people under the guidance of Dr. Timothy Verstynen.
My general interest is in the convergence of top-down and bottom-up information during sensorimotor processing and decision-making. My research focuses on how statistical regularities and other forms of prior knowledge become integrated with sensory representations in the brain to learn and select appropriate motor outputs. I use a variety of methods to explore these questions including behavioral psychophysics, computational modeling, and various neuroimaging techniques.
If I'm not in the lab I'm either writing/recording music, tinkering with web & interface design, or hanging out with friends.
