About Me

I am a fourth year PhD student studying cognitive neuroscience at The University of Texas at Dallas. I am interested in how language interacts with human thinking, reasoning, and problem solving. My work utilizes neuroimaging techniques, such as fMRI and EEG/ERP, to understand the cognitive mechanisms of reasoning and how these relate to neural functioning. I am also interested in how traumatic brain injuries affect cognitive constructs, such as attention and semantic memory, to inform and develop cognitive rehabilitation programs. I enjoy visualizing and analyzing data, learning programming, blogging, and watching hockey.
