I'm a cognitive neuroscientist working with BJ Casey and Avram Holmes in the Fundamentals of the Adolescent Brain (FAB) and Holmes Labs at Yale University. My research explores how we pay attention, and how insights from attention research can help improve focus. In particular, I build models that predict individual differences in attention and cognition from patterns of functional brain connectivity across development.
I did my graduate work in the Department of Psychology at Yale, where I worked primarily with Marvin Chun and collaborated with Todd Constable. I came to Yale from the Boston Attention and Learning Lab, where I examined attention fluctuations with Michael Esterman. Before that, I studied cognitive neuroscience at Brown University, where I worked on cognitive control and memory with David Badre.
