As a native New Mexican, I traveled to California with the brain on my mind and a desire to study it. With a BS in Physics, I joined the Neuroscience Graduate Group and the Spatial Cognition Lab. My main research interests involve using function magnetic resonance imaging and electrocorticography to characterize large-scale networks present during episodic memory processes. The future holds new and exciting prospects, namely investigating the effects of stimulation on memory retrieval. Outside of lab, I enjoy rock climbing, ultimate frisbee, inner tube water polo, and eating.
