I am a PhD candidate in the laboratory of Professor Naoshige Uchida in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at Harvard University. Dr. Uchida's lab studies the neurobiological basis of decision making and learning, and my thesis work is focused on the circuits underlying sensorimotor learning. I have been awarded a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship (dept. news).
