Hi! I am a 2nd year biology PhD student at MIT, participating in the Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience program (MCN). I recently joined Matt Wilson's lab. I'm  interested in the role of the hippocampus and adjacent brain areas in memory and decision making during spatial tasks. To learn about these processes, we do in vivo electrode recordings from rats.
