Sensation and Perception

Research Interests

My research interests focus on human perception and attention, specifically, how attending to something makes it easier, or in some cases, more difficult to see or hear. I am also interested in human color vision, visual masking and other phenomena related to how quickly we can process visual information. Finally, I am interested in the effects of mental imagery on perception; for example, how having a visual or auditory mental image of something can affect the way you see or hear.
