Brandon is a cognitive neuroscience PhD student in the psychology department. His research interests lie in the impact of emotion and goal-states on memory formation and retrieval in naturalistic settings. He aims to explore how diverse internal states influence human perception and segmentation of continuous experiences. Brandon is currently exploring how emotion can create contextual boundaries during passive movie watching using intracranial EEG and behavioral methods. Outside of the lab, he enjoys the great outdoors, painting, and hanging with his cats.
