I am a postdoctoral PET/MR physicist at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, where I work on strategies to model simultaneously acquired structural, functional, and molecular imaging data to probe neural states during oculomotor tasks.

I received a Ph.D. in Medical Physics from the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and worked in Clinical Neurosciences as a postdoctoral MRI physicist at the University of Oxford in the UK.

In my free time I enjoy music, both playing and attending shows, travel, and working on electronics and software projects. I have a strong interest in general aviation, and am pursuing an FAA private pilot's license. I am also a PADI certified advanced open water diver.
