My current research interests center on human spatial memory. To this end, I am using immersive virtual reality, fMRI, EEG, and computational modeling. I am working to apply advanced analytical techniques to data gathered across these modalities (e.g., machine learning analysis, network analysis, encoding models) to investigate how the brain represents spatial memories of large-scale environments. I am also interested in developing novel behavioral assays, with the goal of providing a more direct link between immersive behavior and the brain. I am currently funded via a NRSA Individual Postdoctoral Fellowship in collaboration with Charan Ranganath's Dynamic Memory Lab and Arne Ekstrom's Human Spatial Cognition Lab.
Before coming to UC Davis, I received my Ph.D. from UC Irvine under the mentorship of Craig Stark. Outside of the lab, I enjoy spending time with my family, rowing, biking, surfing, and playing music.
