I received my B.S. from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) where I completed thesis research examining the function of the basal forebrain cholinergic system in sensory learning in the lab of Dr. Andrea Chiba. In my graduate research conducted with Dr. Douglas Nitz at UCSD, I utilized in vivo electrophysiology to investigate the role of retrosplenial cortex in the extraction and encoding of spatial relationships mapped in different spatial coordinate systems. I completed postdoctoral work in the lab of Dr. Michael Hasselmo at Boston University, where I continued to examine cortical computations related to spatial transformations, navigation, and memory. In July 2023, I started my independent laboratory in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of California, Santa Barbara. When I'm not in lab or the lecture hall, you can find me outdoors tromping around with my partner and our trusty dog Cooper, running or cycling around SB/Goleta, golfing, or occasionally on a skateboard.
