For two of my undergraduate years at University of California Irvine, I worked with Emily Grossman and her lab
studying how the human brain computes the motion of people performing
actions. I conducted four neuroimaging experiments about how the
biological motion-sensitive STS region encodes actions from different viewpoints
(left or right, near or far). During my time in the Grossman lab
I learned a great deal about motion perception, neuroscience, and
science in general.
I enjoyed vision
science so much, in fact, that I decided to apply for a job as a
research assistant at Vanderbilt University where, over the last two
years, I have been working with Adriane Seiffert designing experiments
to see what kind of visual information the brain uses while attending
to moving objects.
This summer I will be joining Cathleen Moore's Iowa Perception and Attention Lab
as a graduate student at the University of Iowa! I look forward to
researching more about what sensory information the brain uses to
perceive and represent visual space.
Current and Future Interests
I have been working with Adriane Seiffert and her lab for the
last two years, studying how the brain attends to multiple moving
objects. I've been fortunate to assist the graduate and postdoctoral
students in a variety of experiment types and techniques, ranging from
psychophysics to virtual reality. My research focuses on
how the brain uses visual information it is given. As these objects
move, what features do we use to keep track of them, and under what
circumstances do we discard information?
My non-academic interests include photography, scuba diving, and solving anagrams.
