I am broadly interested in understanding how the brain prioritizes behaviorally relevant sensory information. I pursue these interests using multi-modal metrics of brain activity, including oscillatory activity (M/EEG) and functional MR imaging. I seek both to gain a basic scientific understanding of how these measures relate to perception and behavior, and how their individual differences emerge across the lifespan and relate to symptoms of mental health disorder.
