Serra Favila


I’m a cognitive neuroscientist interested in memory and visual perception. My research uses behavioral, computational, and neural methods to investigate how visual experiences are transformed into flexible long-term memories.

I am currently a postdoctoral scientist working with Mariam Aly and Josh Jacobs at Columbia University, where I’m supported by an NIH Blueprint D-SPAN F99/K00 Award. I received my PhD in Psychology from NYU, working with Brice Kuhl and Jon Winawer. Prior to graduate school, I was an undergrad and postbacc research assistant in Anthony Wagner’s lab at Stanford University.

Starting in July 2024, I’ll be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cognitive, Linguistic, and Psychological Sciences at Brown University. I’m recruiting – join the lab!
