I am currently a lab manager at Wouter Kool's Control and Decision-Making Lab.

Previously I studied Psychology at UT Austin with an emphasis in Cognitive Neuroscience. My main interests meet at the intersection of executive function and memory for flexible goal-directed behavior, specifically, when, how and why certain control strategies are nominated over others and subsequently implemented. Currently, I am examining how the adaptive re-use of control strategies depends on a balance between the cost of learning and integrating new information with the cost of resculpting prior knowledge to meet present demands.
