Vision, perception, neuroscience, psychophysics, fMRI

I'm a graduate student in Stanford's Neurosciences PhD Program, mentored by Justin Gardner. Before coming to Stanford, I worked with Larry Cormack and Alex Huk at the University of Texas to study motion perception and visual working memory, and I graduated with a degree in neuroscience in 2018. Broadly, I'm interested in studying how visual information is encoded in the brain and how we can decode neural signals to better understand neural representations of perception. My current research involves investigating how the visual properties of orientation and spatial frequency are represented in visual cortex by using psychophysics paired with fMRI.
