I am a new assistant professor at the University of Chicago, in the department of Organismal Biology and Anatomy and the Neuroscience Institute. My work is focused on understanding how cortical circuits compute in order to make decisions and drive action. I performed my PhD work in Krishna Shenoy's lab at Stanford, in close collaboration with Mark Churchland (now at Columbia), and did a postdoc in Anne Churchland's lab at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.

I'm currently hiring postdocs to do mouse imaging experiments. If you're interested in understanding how cortical circuits implement computationally useful dynamics, please drop me an email.
