I'm a graduate student in the Egner lab within the Cognitive Neuroscience P&N subarea. I'm broadly interested in how learning and memory interact and work hand-in-hand with attentional control processes to guide how we respond in various situations. I hope to investigate these topics using various methodologies (behavior, modeling, fMRI, EEG, TMS).
