After college and a few twists and turns, got really excited about cognitive neuroscience. He did his PhD at WashU in Saint Louis, studying decision-making and motivation with Todd Braver, then went on to study the role of striatal dopamine in cognitive effort with Roshan Cools at the Donders Institute in the Netherlands and Michael Frank at Brown. In his faculty position, he will use TMS, EEG, pharmacology and fMRI to study neuromodulation and cognitive control.
