I'm a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Turk-Browne Lab at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. I investigate how we learn about, think about, and interact with objects.

Specific research questions (with respect to a banana):
1) How does medial temporal lobe learn that an unpeeled banana, a peeled banana, and a sliced banana are all possible states of the same banana at different moments in time?
2) How does visual cortex anticipate what a peeled banana will look like before you even finish peeling it?
3) How does prefrontal cortex retrieve from memory what the banana looked like before it was peeled?
