I am currently a postdoctoral research scientist in the Aly and Baldassano labs at Columbia University where I use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and computational modeling techniques to answer questions about how the brain represents memories.
Prior to being in the DML, I completed my undergraduate training at the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) where I worked with Dr. Patricia Reuter-Lorenz on the role of semantic context in memory performance.
I then completed a research assistantship with Dr. Elizabeth Kensinger at Boston College where I expanded this line of work to investigate how semantic and phonologic contexts differentially affect memory performance in college students and healthy elderly individuals.
I endeavor to make space for Black and other underrepresented minoritized folx in my mentoring. Please get in touch if I can provide support (e.g., tips on applying to grad school, reviewing CVs, etc.) There is also a list of some resources and readings that I am continually using to educate myself here. I invite criticism and critiques of how I can be a better ally and mentor in general, but, specifically to Black and underrepresented minoritized scientists.
