Research Interests

My main goal is to understand what kind of computations and how are used by the neural populations in the brain in different perception, decision making and action tasks. To address this question a combination of various fields including math, biology and psychology is needed.  Previously, I worked on neural implementations of cue integration (under supervision of Weiji Ma) and temporal integration of visual information (under supervision of David Knill).

Currently, my main focus is on computational modeling of working memory and attention using fMRI data under supervision of Clayton Curtis at NYU.
