    Computational models of response inhibition and decision-making

    I study the mechanisms underlying executive control of actions, with an emphasis on mechanisms involved in response inhibition. My goal is to understand the principles underlying these processes and how networks of brain regions contribute to them. To address these issues, I use modified versions of the stop-signal task and employ diverse techniques, including computational modeling, as well as brain imaging and brain stimulation.

    Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher affiliated with Jeff Schall, Gordon Logan, and Tom Palmeri, working on computational models of response time and executive control. I earned my PhD from Utrecht University where I worked with Matthijs Vink and René Kahn on the neural mechanisms of proactive and reactive inhibition in healthy human subjects and patients with schizophrenia.
