My interests lie in how children learn to construct future or alternate realities by flexibly accessing and recombining memories. I aim to understand the processes that support this learning, as well as how resulting insight might be used to promote positive academic outcomes.
My research examines how the brain uses individual memories to build general knowledge, and how general knowledge is incorporated into new memories. I use neuroimaging and computational modeling to test how meaningful memories are stored and recalled.
My research combines use of virtual naturalistic environments and advanced MRI methods to understand the neurobiological mechanisms underlying how human knowledge becomes systematically organized as a framework for cognition.
My research examines the neurocognitive development of memory representation. I am particularly interested in how representational capacities influence knowledge formation and extension in children, adolescents, and adults.
I am interested in studying the neural mechanisms that allow us to organize our ongoing experience to be transformed into discrete events during development.
I am interested in how different episodic memory processes are modulated by emotion. Specifically, how emotion influences relationships between memory representations for events.
I am interested in understanding learning and memory through electrophysiology. Intracranial EEG offers an exciting and unique opportunity to study single neuron activity and the human brain under finer temporal resolutions.
I’m interested in understanding how statistical knowledge is acquired and organized in early development and how memory mechanisms shape early learned representation of concepts.
I am interested in how neurocognitive development drives changes in behavior across the lifespan, with a focus on how foundational work in learning and memory mechanisms can inform educational best practices.
My primary interests lie in how we can leverage neuroimaging to improve our computational neural network models of the brain to attain a better understanding of human learning and memory.
I am interested in human cognition and neuroscience. One of my main research interests is the effect of psychopathology and environment on cognition and neural development.
As a double major in Biology and Neuroscience, I focus on biological components such as eye data involved in behavioral studies in neurodevelopment that focus on generalization and specificity in children’s memory.
I am deeply motivated to connect the fields of neuroscience and social psychology. My thesis will investigate the effects of social rejection and how people use creativity and creative means, such as clothing, to express themselves.
I am interested in how episodic memory processes are affected by emotion, sleep, and aging to better understand memory accuracy and distortion in young and healthy aging adults.
