Research Interests

I am fascinated by the way our visual system deals with the retinal stimulus in a flexible manner under various circumstances. I am particularly interested in how the brain selectively enhances processing of different aspects of the visual scene, such as basic visual features, spatial locations, and complex object representations. I am also interested in investigating the intricate relationship between these selection processes and our conscious visual experience.

Quick Bio

I was born and grew up in Seoul, South Korea. I received my BA in Psychology (2009) and MA in Experimental Psychology (2011) from Korea University, where I worked with Dr. Yang Seok Cho in the Human Performance Lab. My previous work focused on understanding how top-down and bottom-up processes interact to guide visual attention. Upon completing my master's degree, I moved to the US to start my PhD at Vanderbilt University working with Dr. Frank Tong.
