Research Summary

I am working with Dr. Brown Hsieh and Dr. Trevor Penney on investigating visual processing, visual consciousness, and cortical organization of visual pathways using behavioural techniques and neuroimaging. I am interested in how consciousness, attention, and working memory interact, and how different factors — internal (experience, expectations) and external (too little information, distractions) — affect these relationships. My prior experience includes investigating vision loss with head- and eye-tracking and virtual environments (with Drs. Eliezer Peli and Alexandra Bowers), and using artificial neural networks to evaluate neurological damage to visual system (with Dr. Stephen Kosslyn).

Research Interests

Visual information processing, attention, visual consciousness, individual differences, predictive coding, Bayesian approaches, computational programming languages
