I am currently a third year graduate student in the Brain and Cognitive Sciences (BCS) Department at the University of Rochester. I am primarily advised by Professor Rajeev Raizada. My research focus is on using behavioral, neuroimaging, and computational methods to explore how people are able to learn about novel objects and how objects ultimately get represented in the brain, either at the object-level or as a category, within neural networks.

I was born and raised in New York City and attended New York University for my undergraduate studies (CAS '12). After graduation, I moved to Pittsburgh, PA to work as a lab manager at Carnegie Mellon University with Professor Michael Tarr. In August 2014, I moved to Rochester, NY to begin my graduate studies.
