I was born and raised in southern California. I got my bachelor's degree from UCSD, and worked as an undergraduate research assistant under the guidance of Dr. Jaime Pineda and Dr. V.S. Ramachandran. I am currently a candidate for PhD at UCI under the guidance of Dr. Emily Grossman. My research interests center around human visual perception and I have completed projects investigating mirror neurons using EEG, biological motion perception using novel psychophysics methods like "bubbles", and computational modelling of the visual system and biological motion perception. I am currently trying to integrate reverse correlation with fMRI BOLD signals to understand the stimulus sensitivities and computational roles of various extrastriate visual regions of interest (hMT+, LOC, MT, pSTS, EBA...etc) during point-light biological motion perception.
