I had the pleasure of writing a Preview for Neuron for a recent paper by Erie Boorman’s group. It’s out now!


The 2020 Context and Episodic Memory Symposium wil take place virtually and I am excited to present some new work on sequence memory.


Our new preprint on learning to physically navigate an abstract quantity space is now on bioRxiv.
