I am currently Research Scientist for Philips Healthcare, working on clinical decision support systems. Prior to joining Philips I completed a postdoctoral position with Dr. Sheila Nirenberg on visual prosthetics. I completed my PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University, where I worked with Dr. Ed Connor in the Mind-Brain Institute to study the role of intermediate visual area V4 in the vision system, and specifically, the adaptations made to efficiently process the natural world. In the four years before coming to JHU I earned my bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan. While there I had the honor of being a member of the University of Michigan Solar Car Team - a group of students dedicated to constructing and racing a solar powered electric vehicle in the biennial races across the US and Australia. These days, when I'm not working at lab, I usually like to spend my time running, hiking, photographing, and skiing, among other things.
