I'm a postdoctoral researcher working at Duke University with Dr. Paul Seli and Dr. Tobias Egner.

My research interests include adaptive cognitive control (How do people learn to ignore distractions?), skill-learning (How do people learn to play a musical instrument?), inattention (Why do people mind wander?), and creativity (How does flexible control facilitate creativity?).

Originally I'm from Winnipeg, MB Canada (home to cold winters, the Winnipeg Jets, and John K. Samson; see also winnipeglovehate.com). I earned BA (honours) and MA in Psychology from the University of Manitoba, where I studied auditory attention and music perception under Dr. Todd Mondor. I earned my PhD in Psychology from the The Graduate Center of the City University of New York where i worked in the Human Cognition and Performance Lab at Brooklyn College under Dr. Matthew Crump studying attention, cognitive control, skilled human performance, and music cognition.
