Research Interests

Our goal is to understand how the human brain empowers learning, thinking, and feeling, and to use that understanding to help people live happier and more productive lives.

We study how the human brain supports mental abilities via neuroimaging of brain function and structure and the analysis of behavior.

We seek to understand how such abilities are typically supported by the brain, and how this varies across human diversity (people of different ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, personalities, cultures).

We aim to use that understanding to help people with neurodevelopmental challenges such as dyslexia, ADHD, and autism, and neuropsychiatric challenges such as anxiety, depression, and schizophrenia. We want to enhance early identification of risks and promote preventive treatments.

We want to use such knowledge to inform and improve practices and policies in education.
