Brief Biographical Sketch:

As an undergraduate, I worked in a deep brain stimulation lab trying to understand how electrodes placed deep in the brain helped people with Parkinson's Disease.

For my PhD, at the University of Washington, I studied motor learning in a very specialized brain structure called the cerebellum.

Now, as a post-doc in Tirin Moore's lab at Stanford, I study how dopamine affects neural circuits that contribute to attention.
