I joined the D'Esposito lab in the fall of 2009. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania, where I worked with Dr. Amishi Jha. In my graduate work, I used event-related potentials to investigate the modulatory influence of working memory and selective attention control processes on early visual processing.
In the D'Esposito lab, my research will focus on the neural networks that support working memory. I plan to use functional MRI and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to investigate how coordinated activity between brain regions contributes to working memory. I also plan on examining inter- and intra-individual differences in brain activation and behavior to clarify the functional role of different brain networks.
