I'm a student in the Neurosciences Graduate Program, raised here in the Bay Area. When I'm not hiking, biking, or running, I study the function and development of the visual system. In particular, my interests include the spatial organization and function of primate visual cortex and the development of biologically-inspired neural networks that can help us understand the visual system. I also co-lead the Computational Neuroscience Journal Club (CNJC), a space to discuss core ideas, results, and techniques in computational neuroscience. Going forward, I hope to continue studying the role of biophysical constraints on brain organization and finding opportunities to share my excitement for science with others.
