I’m a cognitive and systems neuroscientist. That means I study how the brain works, and the relationship between the mind and the brain. I’m particularly interested in how we control our thoughts, and why doing so is difficult for some people.

I’m currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pittsburgh. I did my PhD at the University of California, Berkeley.

Outside of science, I can often be found taking photos. I live in Southwest Berkeley with two cats, Bug and Dora.
