Please visit me at my new web site.

I study visual information representation in the human brain using  both behavioral measures and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) techniques.  I am particularly interested in the  involvement of the human posterior parietal cortex in supporting the adaptive and online aspect of visual information processing critical to visual working memory, decision making and behavior.


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