I’m a PhD Candidate studying computational neuroscience at Duke University, jointly advised in the Pearson Lab and the Field Lab. I am focusing on computational understanding of retinal information processing using deep neural networks and information theory. In the future, I hope to apply the understanding of neural information processing to the general brain-machine interface and develop visual prosthetics.

In the past, I received my Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at Yale University in the Cardin Lab, where I studied distinct patterns of network activity caused by Channelrhodopsin variants. After graduation, I worked on retinal circuitry in the Demb Lab at Yale.
