I am a cognitive neuroscientist, meaning that I explore our amazing cognitive abilities and how they are realized in the brain. My research revolves around understanding attentional control and its relationship to consciousness. I conduct behavioral experiments, employ functional neuroimaging (fMRI), and apply computational models in order to learn about how we function.

I am also an inaugural faculty member at Yale-NUS College in the division of Social Sciences. As a liberal arts college, Yale-NUS focuses on excellent undergraduate education in courses ranging from the humanities to the sciences, active learning in small seminar-style classes, participation in community initiatives, and deep investigation through research.

You can learn more about my work from my list of publications, CV, or page on Google Scholar.
