I am a graduate student pursuing a PhD in Neuroscience at Princeton Neuroscience Institute. My thesis advisor is Matthew Botvinick. I am currently based in London though and am working with the DeepMind Neuroscience team.

Research interests include: hippocampus + entorhinal cortex, reinforcement learning (deep or otherwise), efficient representations for reinforcement learning, and on good days, fMRI.
