Neural and cognitive plasticity; computational neuroscience; comparative bioacoustics and cognition; autism spectrum disorder
My research focuses on how cortical and subcortical systems interact to construct representations of experienced events, and how these representations change over time. My approach is integrative and comparative. I’m using techniques from the fields of experimental psychology, computational neuroscience, electrical engineering, and behavioral neuroscience to answer questions about perceptual learning, memory, and behavior in humans and other animals.
I’m currently supervising graduate students in the Behavioral Neuroscience doctoral program. These students are pursuing research related to autism spectrum disorder.
