I am currently a postdoctoral fellow working with Yaoda Xu at Harvard University. I received my Ph.D. in psychology from Boston University in 2010 while working with David Somers. My graduate work focused on understanding the nature of capacity limits in visual attention and short-term memory and the relationship between these processes, as well as how these processes are enacted in the parietal cortex. As a postdoc, I am continuing my work with visual short-term memory, exploring how it is stored and the role of both feature and location processing, as well as expanding my work in the parietal cortex to explore the functional organization of the intraparietal sulcus.
Outside of neuroscience, I love spending my time puttering around in my garden, reading, doing marital arts, and chasing my two boys and dog around.
