I am a researcher who uses advanced statistics and analysis methods to uncover insights about complex systems using real-world data.
Currently, my research supports data-driven decision-making by the U.S. Government, primarily the Department of Defense (DoD). To get a general sense for this line of work, visit the Institute of Defense Analyses website.
My background is in cognitive neuroscience, where I studied how the human brain processes sounds of spoken languages. I used cutting-edge neuroscience techniques such as direct cortical recording (electrocorticography; ECoG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and electroencephalography (EEG). My work has been published in prestigious peer-reviewed journals such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (press release), Neuron, Cerebral Cortex, and The Journal of Neuroscience.
