I am a PhD candidate in the laboratory of Professor Naoshige Uchida in the Center for Brain Science & Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at Harvard University. My thesis work is focused on uncovering the neural circuits and mechanisms underlying sensorimotor learning. I use mouse behavioral paradigms with electrophysiology, 2-photon microscopy, closed-loop optogenetic perturbations, and computational methods to understand the driving components of motor learning. My work is partially funded by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship (dept. news).
Previously, I worked in the labs of Hynek Wichterle and Christopher Henderson at Columbia University to build in vitro models of ALS using motor neurons generated from human stem cells, which was generously funded by Project A.L.S..
