Postdoctoral Researcher, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

I recently received my Ph.D. in Systems Neuroscience under the mentorship of John Gabrieli and Rebecca Saxe at MIT. I am currently a postdoctoral associate with Nancy Kanwisher in collaboration with Bruce Fischl.

Connectivity is among the most important aspects of the brain, since it constrains and defines the information that can be processed in a local network. My research explores the relationship between neuroanatomical connectivity (measured non-invasively through diffusion weighted imaging - DWI) and the neural responses underlying high-level vision and cognition. By linking connectivity patterns with neural response profiles, I hope to elucidate the physical mechanisms which ultimately result in human behaviour.
