Graduate Student
Edan is a PhD student in PNI. She previously worked on EEG analyses in the Dinstein Lab at Ben-Gurion University in Israel, and now researches how visual experience during either childhood or adulthood shapes the organization and computations that occur within visual cortex.

Graduate Student
Omar Singleton is a PhD student in PNI. He previously worked on neuroimaging projects at MGH, and now studies how the human thalamus develops across the lifespan and the roles it plays in mediating developmental changes in the cortex in neurotypical individuals and those diagnosed with psychiatric disorders.

Graduate Student
Patricia Hoyos is a PhD student in PNI, and member of the Gomez and Kastner labs. She is currently studying the development of the human dorsal stream to understand how changes in our attentional abilities and biases are shaped by structural and computational changes occurring within visual cortex.

Undergraduate Research Assistant
Anna Williams is a research assistant in the lab. Beginning as a summer intern here at Princeton, she is currently helping pilot new behavioral experiments designed to test visuo-spatial attention development. Using this data, she is designing machine learning models for the classification of attentional biases.

Undergraduate Student
I am an undergraduate senior majoring in neuroscience with a minor in computer science. I am interested in identifying biomarkers that could enhance the diagnosis or treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders using imaging techniques. At the Brain Development Lab, I worked with Fred to investigate the cerebellum-neocortex codevelopment in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. For my ongoing senior thesis, I am continuing the investigation of cerebellar-neocortical pathways, focusing on their potential contribution to object recognition. During my free time, I love coloring, doing yoga, and spending time with friends and family.
