Tommy Botch

Science biography


I am a Cognitive Neuroscience graduate student co-advised by the FINN Lab and Robertson Lab. I received a B.S in Psychobiology in 2017 from UCLA. After graduating, I worked as a research assistance for UCLA Center of Behavioral and Addiction Medicine, a cheesemonger, and, penultimately, a lab manager for the Robertson Lab. Broadly, I am interested in how differences in the brain and behavior drive the diversity of individual experience. To address these questions, I use a combination of techniques including virtual reality, behavioral and neuroimaging paradigms. 


Non-science biography


I am a Los Angeles native and a recent transplant to the Upper Valley. When not in lab, I can likely be found at a cafe reading a book (currently reading: The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov), expanding my collection of vinyl records, or wandering through the local hiking trails.
