My laboratory uses behavioral and neurophysiological approaches to study how rewards and punishments influence cognitive processes such as learning, memory and decision-making.

I joined the faculty at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in the spring of 2017 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neuroscience and the Friedman Brain Institute. I received a bachelor’s degree from Tufts University, an MD and PhD in Neuroscience from Mount Sinai School of Medicine under the Medical Scientist Training Program, and trained as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley.
