I'm a Ph.D. student in Neuroscience at the University of Washington and at the Allen Institute for Brain Science. I study how different parts of the brain are specialized to help us see motion and spatial detail. I like to write about the brain, technology, and the intersection of science and justice. I was born in Cali, Colombia and am based in Seattle, Washington.
