Graduate Student

I am interested in building neurally plausible computational models of human perception, attention and action in complex dynamic scenes. For instance, what is the computational substrate that allows humans to successfully cross a busy intersection in Manhattan? I received my BA in Philosophy from King’s College London and my MSc in Computer Science from Imperial College London. Before joining Columbia, I was an RA in Ilker Yildirim’s Cognitive & Neural Computation Lab at Yale, where I worked on a novel computational framework of dynamic attention.
