I am an Assistant Professor in the Egil and Pauline Braathen and Fred Kavli Centre for Cortical Microcircuits, which is part of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience at the Norwegian University of Science & Technology.

From 2013-2017, I worked with Karl Friston as a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellow at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at University College London. As part of my fellowship, I also conducted research at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. I received my PhD in Neuroscience from University College London under the supervision of Neil Burgess in the summer of 2013. My PhD was funded by the NIH Graduate Partnership Program and I had Peter Bandettini as a co-supervisor. Beforehand, I completed a BA in Neuroscience from Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
