BA in Computer Science and Neuroscience, Dartmouth College

I am a student in the Ph.D. Program in Neural Computation. I am generally interested in how computations in our brains allow us to learn complex behaviors. At CMU I have studied curiosity versus reward-driven decision making in human subjects performing virtual card-choice tasks. In Bonnie's lab I am studying cognitive control in typed language production through online experiments which incorporate external monitors.
