Position Title
Ph.D. Candidate

Dept. of Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior


Research Interests:

Incorporating both basic and translational neuroscience, my research interests involve the interactions between the basal ganglia and higher order cortical areas, such as the prefrontal cortex. My research focuses on neural networks and connectivity between these brain areas and others, by exploring their role in cognition and visual processing. Specifically, by highlighting the role of synchronized neural oscillations. Other areas of interest include electrophysiological characteristics of the brain and information processing.
