Science + Research + Art

My science

I enjoy science and technology with a particular passion for neuroscience and engineering.

I completed my bachelors in bioengineering at University of California, Berkeley with research experiences in microelectromechanical systems and psychophysics on the olfactory system. I then moved from the engineering side of campus to the other side to pursue my PhD in neuroscience. For my doctoral thesis, I study decision-making under Prof. Jonathan Wallis, looking specifically at how value gets assigned to external environmental cues as compared to internally generated actions.

In light humour, here’s a pop culture representation of my line of research:
