About

After dropping out of high school, tyler began organizing with social and environmental justice movements throughout the United States and Sub-Saharan Africa. He returned to school at age 22 ; first attending Miami Dade Community College, then continuing his scientific training at Columbia University, the Max Planck Institute, and the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT. As an NSF Graduate Research Fellow, his PhD integrates biologically plausible computational models, neural data, and animal behavior, in order to better understand the neurobiology of memory. It is tyler’s hope that understanding these principles will--alongside more just social institutions--enable us to develop more grounded healing practices.
