My research interests are generally focused on the dynamic changes in brain organization that occur as a result of changes to one’s environment. I explore changing cognitive demands during reinforcement learning and cognitive control because these are two processes that require flexibility in behavior. They are thus well-suited to exploring the flexibility of neural systems. My approach utilizes convergent methods taken from psychology, neuroscience, and mathematics to most fully investigate neural flexibility and these fundamental cognitive processes. These methods include computational modeling, machine learning, functional and resting state connectivity, and graph theory. Moreover, the developing brain is particularly valuable to addressing my research questions because children’s brains are highly adaptable and have a great potential for plasticity.

I sincerely apologize that we have a long-standing and unresolved problem that users are unable to modify the database contents using their logins and passwords. I hope that we can fix this problem soon. In the meantime, I will try to do this manually as best I can.
