Research Interests

Broadly speaking, I am interested in studying system and computational models of brain functions during perception, decision making and motor planning. Currently, I am a Ph.D candidate in Cognition and Perception in Curtis Lab at New York University, where my focus is on computational modeling of working memory and attention using fMRI data. Previously, I worked on neural implementation of causal inference and cue integration (under supervision of Weiji Ma) and temporal integration of visual information (under supervision of David Knill).
