When faced with a tough problem (like trying to understand the brain!), it is useful to break it down into smaller components and tackle each in isolation. But ultimately, to truly understand the brain and behavior, we have to understand the interplay between the different components. I approach my research with the goal of understanding interactions between attention, perception, and memory, and how they jointly influence our goal-directed behavior.
Fun fact: I have a window named after me in Davis, California!
