Postdoctoral Researcher in the Brain and Cognition Lab

Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford 

My work focuses on understanding how our past experiences and memories guide attention and behavior. I am specifically interested in how we may proactively use memories from different time scales (short & long-term) and from different dimensions (spatial, temporal, & identity) to guide ongoing behavior. To understand these processes I use a combination of psychophysical methods with non-invasive brain imaging techniques. 

 

Currently I am a post-doc in Kia Nobre's Brain and Cognition Lab at the University of Oxford. Previously I completed my PhD in the Department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford. Before coming to Oxford, I received my Masters in Interdisciplinary Neuroscience from Goethe University of Frankfurt where I worked in Melissa Võ's Scene Grammar Lab. I completed my BSc at the University of Delaware where I worked in James Hoffman's Visual Cognition Lab. Following my BSc, I worked for two years as a research assistant in Jeremy Wolfe's Visual Attention Lab
