Director of Neuroimaging Research, Haskins Laboratories
Senior Scientist, Haskins Laboratories
PI of Haskins' subcontract, A-117: Smoking, Brain Function and Outcome in Adolescents

Ph.D., Dartmouth College (Experimental Psychology), 1994;

Research Interests

Cognitive neuroscience, dyslexia, and music perception. Currently I am trying to understand the structure of cognition via network analysis of brain activation patterns. Tomorrow? Who knows.
