I am currently a PhD student at the City University of New York in the Cognitive and Comparative Psychology program at the Memory & Attention Lab under Dr. Timothy Ricker. My interests include working memory, long-term memory, and how these functions differ in various populations. I’m particularly interested in using neuroimaging and eye-tracking to answer questions about human cognition.

I graduated from the University of Rochester with a dual B.S./B.A. in Brain & Cognitive Sciences and Linguistics. Previously, I worked in the Division of Cognitive and Motor Aging at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine investigating computer-based cognitive remediation programs to improve cognition and mobility.
