About Me: I received my BA in 2001 from Colgate University and my MA in 2006 and PhD in 2010 from Princeton University. My dissertation focused on the mechanisms of attentional control using fMRI and TMS. As part of the Knight Lab, I will be using EEG and ECoG to study the mechanisms of attentional control in the intact and damaged human brain.
