Our memories are not perfect replications of our past experiences. They are dynamic and can be modulated by conditions at the time of encoding, consolidation, retrieval, and reconsolidation. As a postdoctoral researcher in the Dynamic Memory Lab, I am interested in understanding how contextual conditions during encoding affect memory representations, and how retrieval of these memories can change those representations.
I received my Ph.D from the University of Toronto in 2017 where I studied complex networks of the brain and how they related to clinical memory measures in people with temporal lobe epilepsy using MRI. Outside of the lab, I enjoy playing volleyball, basketball, and rock climbing.
