Personal profile

Personal information

The human brain holds the key to who we are, our thoughts, memories, and perception of the world around us. Vision is the dominant sense in humans and the most investigated and best understood. I study the visual system not only to understand vision, but also as a model for how the rest of the brain functions.

My research is centered on the intersection of perception, cognition, neuroscience and computational neuroimaging. The ultimate goal is to understand the neurophysiology of the visual system, and how neural computations result in visual perception and cognition.
