Research Interest:

I'm interested in studying how the brain processes information about other people, and ways in which this information might be processed more efficiently than or entirely uniquely from nonsocial information. In addition, I'm interested in developing the use of the new neuroimaging technique fNIRS for social neuroscience research in order to 1) conduct research in live, rather than simulated, social conditions and 2) facilitate the public's use of social neuroscience work.
