I am driven by the question how cells in our bodies interpret and respond to external stimuli and use fruitflies as a model to find my answers. The visual system is the primary sense organ that connects us to the external world and influences how we perceive things around us. Currently, I am a Post-Doctoral scientist at New York University studying how visual stimuli is interpreted in the fly brain.

I am also keen on science communication and advocating for female, underrespresentated scientists. 

I am excited about collaborating with visual artists to communicate visual neuroscience to a broader audience!
