Hello! My name is Catrina Hacker and I am a fourth-year PhD student in the Neuroscience Graduate Group at the University of Pennsylvania. My research interests lie at the intersection of computational, cognitive, and systems neuroscience with broad interests in population coding, neural networks, and learning and memory.
I am doing my thesis work in Dr. Nicole Rust's Visual Memory Lab where I'm studying how our recent visual experience shapes visual recognition memory.
I enjoy writing about neuroscience. Check out the writing page to read some of my recent blog-style posts.
