Curriculum vitae (pdf)


Most of my research is in visual psychophysics, particularly color detection and discrimination. I construct quantitative models and use psychophysical data to test such models. Specific topics of recent interest have included multiple (“higher-order”) color mechanisms, sensorimotor adaptation of color, and s-cone increment/decrement asymmetries.
