I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in the Radiological Sciences Lab, following undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT. I was then a Postdoctoral Fellow and Research Fellow at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NIH Intramural Research), in the Advanced MRI Section.
I have a M.Sc. from the Brain and Mind Program at Aalto University, and a Ph.D. from the Integrated Program in Neuroscience at McGill University. My research draws on computational modeling, neuroimaging, and psychophysiological recordings to understand how neural mechanisms of curiosity, prediction, and learning unfold over time, as in the highly emotional and pleasurable response to musical surprise.
My research focuses on functional neuroimaging techniques for studying the human brain. I received my B.E. from Vanderbilt University in Biomedical Engineering.
My research concentrates on signal processing methods for analyzing fMRI measurements of large-scale human brain activity.
I received my B.S. in Neuroscience from the University of the South, and my research interests include the neural mechanisms underlying mental illness and neurodegenerative disease. My current research in the Neuroimaging & Brain Dynamics Lab focuses on functional neuroimaging methodology.
