After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Dartmouth College, I worked on software tools for multiple-electrode, whole-cell patch clamp experiments and whole-brain atlas tools at the Allen Institute for Brain Science. In the Tononi and Cirelli lab I do both theoretical and experimental work. My theoretical work focuses on the relationship between function and phenomenology according to Integrated Information Theory. My empirical work uses large-scale, high-resolution, Neuropixel recordings in rodents in an effort to understand both the neural basis of consciousness and the function of sleep.
