I am currently working with the Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation (NIBS) team. In our studies we are using Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation (NIBS) to improve cognitive performance and accelerate learning by using tDCS. tDCS is known as transcranial direct current stimulation which involves a very weak electrical current that is passed through the scalp and into a region of the brain. I am also involved in assisting in a transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) study at the Kettering Hospital: Innovation Center which evaluates the neuronal changes that occurs during TMS stimulation.

As a Consortium Research Fellow I am working with Dr. Alan Pinkus in the Air Force Research Laboratory, assisting in visual psychophysical experimentation aimed at further understanding image processing by modeling visual search performance through the atmosphere. I am involved in literature review, experimental design, data collection and analysis, and manuscript preparation.
