Curriculum Vitae

Assistant Professor

Biomedical Engineering

Professional Preparation

  • Postdoctoral Fellowship, 2010-2013, Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition, Carnegie Mellon University
  • Ph.D., 2010, Psychological & Brain Sciences, Johns Hopkins University
  • M.S., 2001, Biomedical Engineering, University of Alabama at Birmingham

Research Interests

  • Cognitive Neuroscience of attention in both normal human volunteers and patient populations during visual and auditory stimulation
  • Behavioral and neurological measures of cognitive decline associated with cancer treatment (i.e., chemotherapy, aromatase inhibitors)
  • Human psychophysics and computational modeling of perceptual phenomena
  • Brain network dynamics of cognitive control using functional/structural neuroimaging and transcranial magnetic stimulation
