Research interests: My main research interest is to utilize EEG and neuropsychological assessments to understand cognitive functions (error processing, attention, reward processing, and spatial navigation) in neurotypical individuals and children who are at risk of cognitive deficits (e.g. children with ADHD and pediatric cancer survivors). • In my free time, I enjoy dog sitting, taking care of my in-door plants, and hiking.
