I'm a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Dr. Tim Brady's Vision and Memory lab at the University of California, San Diego. Before coming to sunny SD, I received my Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University, working with Dr. Jon Flombaum.
I take an interdisciplinary approach to understanding cognition, leveraging theories and methods from multiple fields in order to solve complex problems about the mind.
More recently, I have been interested in investigating the way our mind selects and remembers information about the world. Specifically, how does the mind combine multiple visual encounters of an item into a single long-term memory representation of that item? For example, if I enter my apartment and see an intruder, only to realize a moment after it is my dog, how are these events combined into a single long-term memory?
