Human cognition ultimately emerges from sophisticated computations performed by networks of neurons. At the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience with Mike DeWeese, I use and develop theoretical tools to investigate how our brains make sense of and respond to our dynamic environments. In particular, I am pursuing a unified understanding for how the hippocampus and entorhinal cortex allow us to form memories and navigate through space.
