My current research interests lie in exploring the connection between the eye and brain. Specifically, I would like to investigate the interplay between external stimuli and its translation onto the retina and visual cortex.
I am from the suburbs of Chicago and studied neuroscience and biology at Lake Forest College. I always enjoyed being in the lab but had limited exposure to the clinical applications of my work. I was drawn to the AOIP because of its clinical relevance and could not leave once I started to learn more about the imaging research.
