Hello! I am a neuroscientist at Columbia University, working at the Zuckerman Institute and the Center for Theoretical Neuroscience. I completed my PhD in the laboratories of the Attila Losonczy and Stefano Fusi.

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 at Boston University, investigating how cortical input contributed to the organization of network activity in the hippocampus, and how these activity patterns influenced memory-guided behavior.
