Research Interests

I am generally interested in how humans visually perceive objects in their environment. A primary focus of my research is to understand how visual cortex transforms raw visual input in order to facilitate object recognition. I am also investigating the role of cortical feedback on neural responses to objects in the lateral geniculate nucleus. I will be using a range of empirical techniques to address these questions, including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), psychophysics and computational modelling.
