RESEARCH INTERESTS
-  

I am a first year graduate student, co-supervised by Dr. Morgan Barense and Dr. Morris Moscovitch. I graduated from UC Davis with a B.S. in Psychology in 2015. Before joining the lab, I worked as a lab manager in Dr. Charan Ranganath’s Dynamic Memory Lab where I used neuroimaging techniques, like fMRI, to study brain regions in the MTL and their function as it relates to episodic memory. As a graduate student in the Moscovitch lab, I am looking forward to investigating how features like space and time act to structure our memories and what role they play during retrieval. When I’m not doing science I like to do yoga, drink coffee, try new foods, and to pretend that my Californian blood isn’t phased by winter.
