Neuroimaging using fNIRS and EEG/ERPs, Vigilance Decrement & Increment, Simulation Design, Extended Reality, and Neuromodulation

I am a PhD student in the Human Factors and Applied Cognition program at GMU.

Broadly, my passion is the theory and application of Neuroergonomics to all kinds of everyday problems.  

From a Neuroscience standpoint, I am interested in the enhancement of brain imaging methods and their application to critical issues such as human exhaustion, and individual differences in performance efficiency.  From a Human Factors standpoint, I have researched areas ranging from bilingualism, hand dominance, fatigue, cybersecurity, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), to healthcare.  One of my core goals is to maintain a diverse set of research lines - please see the section below for my published works.

I am well-versed in the analysis of Event-Related Potentials (ERPs) and functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS), common statistical analyses, and public speaking.  I believe strongly in interdisciplinary collaboration, and I would love to collaborate with you - in any role or capacity!
