Dakota has been part of our lab since spring 2019 of his Georgetown undergraduate years, during which he completed a Bachelor of Arts in German with an emphasis on psychology, culture, and philosophy. He is currently a medical student (M1) at Trinity School of Medicine. Dakota is interested in exploring questions related to the identity and generation of the self and sees neuroscience as indispensable for exploring the self-reality dynamic. Green lab projects relating to representational similarity analysis are of special interest to him, and he hopes that gaining experience with the development of empirical knowledge will predispose him to excellence as a physician. Dakota has also contributed significantly to our lab’s creativity research working on Rob Cortes' thesis projects. His hobbies include (PC) gaming, hiking, and interpersonal engagement.
