I’m a research technician at the Brain Mechanisms of Pain and Health Lab at UC San Diego and previously a neuroscience undergraduate student at USC and the Brain and Music Lab.

My research experience is in human neuroscience, using psychophysics and neuroimaging to investigate the mechanisms of complex cognition, including music, memory, and pain. In addition to domain research, I aspire to build computational tools to make scientific methods more accessible and reproducible.
