I am interested in how complex activity patterns in the brain map to perception and behavior, and have used a combination of patterned optogenetic stimulation, electrophysiological recordings, and behavioral monitoring to tackle this question.

More broadly, I like to think about novel paradigms in rodent models that test higher-order cognitive behaviors, to leverage the expanding repertoire of tools available for circuit monitoring or manipulation during such behaviors.

I received my undergraduate degree from the National University of Singapore and Masters from Dartmouth College, both in Psychology. My favorite scientists are Claude Shannon and Amos Tversky.
