The Science of Learning Institute includes a broad network of scientists, practitioners, and educators with expertise spanning basic and applied sciences.
I am interested in developing interventions that apply cognitive science principles to solve societal problems. My work is focused on the application of cognitive science learning principles to education and community practice.
I am interested in the neural systems that serve a role in learning, memory and attention.
I am interested in computational vision, bioinformatics, and statistical learning.
I am interested in the the roles of long noncoding RNAs on neural cell fate decisions and the application of single cell RNA-Sequencing to elucidate the developmental hierarchies during neuronal specification.
My research focused on the role of brain capillaries in the formation of the blood brain barrier and the mechanisms of capillary injury in toxic brain disorders.
I am interested in learning, communication, and cognition in autism, Alzheimer’s disease, head injury, pure amnesias, and other acquired and developmental brain disorders.
I am interested in a variety of philosophical and foundational issues that arise in the study of the mind/brain.
