I am interested in attention and cognitive control, specifically how we focus on relevant stimuli and ignore irrelevant stimuli. I am particularly interested in studying individuals with Misophonia, a condition characterized by over-sensitivity and increased attention to certain environmental noises. I am working with Dr. Saygin to explore this condition from a neuroimaging standpoint, such as through connectivity patterns, structural differences, and developmental origins.
