Education:  BS, Biomedical Engineering, Milwaukee School of Engineering, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Research: 4th year PhD candidate. The main goal of my current project is to work out the neural circuitry that underlies color vision. More broadly, I’m interested in trying to understand how neural circuitry relates to perceptual events, specifically, those vision-related. My tool du jour is BOLD fMRI.

Scientific Goals: Vision is perhaps one of the most fundamental of our senses making it the greatest tragedy of all when it is lost. An overarching goal that I would like to achieve is to restore vision in people suffering from visual impairments. With advances in technology there have been great strides made in this field. Someday, I would like to add a piece to this intriguing puzzle.

Interests: Games (sports, cards, video, etc.), outdoors, exercise, books, fantasy, dreaming, movies, fishing, traveling.
