I am a post-doctoral scholar at Stanford University. Currently, I am a member of both the Vision and Perception Neuroscience lab (PI: Prof. Kalanit Grill-Spector; http://vpnl.stanford.edu/) and the Brain Development and Education Lab (PI: Prof. Jason Yeatman; https://www.brainandeducation.com), with the intent to form further bridges between the Psychology Department and the Graduate School of Education at Stanford.


My research explores the neural substrates of math and reading using a multimodal approach that combines functional, diffusion and quantitative MRI, with behavioral measures. Generally, I am interested in how education and learning shape the brain. For more details see the Research page.
