 Research Interests:

Primary interest lies in understanding how the brain processes and represents behaviorally relevant information and behavior as well as the role of temporal precision of neural activity in the production of behavior with current projects including the impact of primate prefrontal and posterior parietal cortices in proportion processing and basic mathematical rules encoded in the primate fronto-parietal network.
