I am bi and I am a cognitive neuroscientist. //

I am a graduate student and NSF Fellow at UC Berkeley’s Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute. I use electrophysiology and computational modeling to study the prefrontal cortex and its role in decision-making. I’m fascinated by the relationships between computational and biological frameworks used to describe high-level cognition (coincidentally, I also watch a lot of “Black Mirror”). When I’m not thinking about brains, you can find me playing the piano, pole dancing, and convincing other people’s cats to love me.
