Postdoc studying how different parts of the brain communicate to make memories and how that communication goes wrong in epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease. Member of the Shuman Lab at Mount Sinai. 

I use in vivo electrophysiology to record activity across multiple brain regions while mice perform tasks in virtual reality. Outside of the lab, I'm involved in science outreach and mental health advocacy. In my free time you can find me writing, baking, and listening to sci-fi/fantasy audiobooks in central park.
