I want to understand the brain as a complex network by analyzing brain structure and function with an emphasis on how the connections and interactions among populations of neurons give rise to a complex and dynamic network. I do this by analyzing human brain images with computational techniques like graph theory. I am a National Science Foundation Graduate Student Fellow. I studied Philosophy and Psychology at Columbia University, where I graduated with honors in both majors and as the valedictorian. I am currently a first year PhD student at UC Berkeley with Mark D’Esposito.
