11/13/2023 - Our new pre-print, "Pre-neuronal biomechanical filtering modulates and diversifies whole-hand tactile encoding", will be out on bioRxiv soon! In the meantime, here is a link to the manuscript.

I'm a Ph.D. candidate in the electrical and computer engineering department at UC Santa Barbara and a graduate student researcher in the RE Touch Lab. The goal of my research is to better understand how our tactile system encodes information from our environment and to use that knowledge for creating better haptic devices, robots, and prosthetics, as well as for developing tools and methods to aid people with sensory disorders.
