Doctoral student in Cognition


Josh is a graduate student working with Ed Awh (co-advised by Ed Vogel). Prior to graduate school, Josh completed a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Psychology, and a Master’s degree in Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. 

Research Interests

Josh is broadly interested in attention and working memory. He is particularly interested in how working memory representations are coded in the brain, and the constraints that limit our ability to represent sensory input. Josh’s recent work has focused on using decoding techniques coupled with EEG to track online representations in working memory and the locus of covert attention.
