Research

I would like to know how the brain works - how does a relatively small piece of tissue work to underlie basically everything we do. More specifically, I'm interested in exploring how the activity of the brain works to organize, interpret, and transmit information between different brain regions. To do this, I study human participants who do basic perceptual and cognitive tasks while undergoing electrophysiological recordings. I also have an interest in data science, as a tool to explore, analyze and summarize data - either existing datasets that can be combined and analyzed to search for hidden patterns, or the literature itself, as tool to summarize and explore the existing body of knowledge.
