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).
