We experience a constant flood of sensory input, but our memories are not a passive record of these traces. How are sensory inputs transformed into durable but flexible memories? How do these transformations promote adaptive behavior? My research draws on insights from both episodic memory and visual neuroscience to understand the neural mechanisms that shape the way that simple visual memories are formed and expressed.

Fun fact: I grow my own vegetables and flowers on the roof of my apartment!
