I am currently a PhD candidate in neurobiology and behavior at Columbia University, working with the Losonczy and Fusi groups. My research interests generally focus on the neurobiology of memory, particularly the computational role of the hippocampus in memory formation.

In my current work, we combine high-density optical recording of neural activity with virtual reality to study these circuits during behavior, and connect our observations to simulations of efficient memory encoding strategies in artificial neural networks.

Previously, I worked with Howard Eichenbaum, investigating how cortical input contributed to the organization of network activity in the hippocampus, and how these activity patterns influenced memory-guided behavior.
