I study how the human mind and brain extract visual object information from multiple distinctive levels of processing and how at any given moment task-relevant object information is represented in the brain. My research uses both behavioral measures and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) techniques. 


I have recently moved from Harvard Vision Sciences Lab to Yale Psychology.
