My research examines how the human brain learns abstract concepts to support generalization and guide choices. My work combines machine learning, human brain imaging and computational modeling to understand how memories of past experiences and plans for future action are organized in the brain and how this organization relates to healthy behavior and mental illness. As a psychiatrist, I supervise Columbia psychiatry residents and treat patients inĀ private practice.
