Broad Interests

  • neural basis of behavior;
  • object recognition;
  • sensory integration and decision-making;
  • feature representation in the visual system;
  • effect of experience on sensory representation.


I'm a postdoctoral researcher studying human attention and object perception in the labs of Geoffrey Boynton and John Palmer at UW.

My area of expertise is the processing of visual information in primates, with broad research interests in sensory perception, object recognition, and decision-making. I am also interested in multimodal sensory integration and human-computer interaction.

To understand how we see the world, I have made use of psychophysics, physiological recording, and computational methods. I enjoy finding answers and solutions using diverse methods and levels of inquiry, which is reflected in my formal training (encompassing perspectives from single molecules, to neurons and neural networks, to entire brains and behavior).
