Research

I am a third-year graduate student in Professor Rhea Eskew’s lab working towards my Ph.D. in Psychology with a focus in Perception. I am generally interested in utilizing psychophysical methods to investigate detection and discrimination of color in human vision. My past research also employed psychophysical methods (scaling, reaction time measurements, 2AFC paradigms) to explore various topics such as visual attention, integration of gustatory and olfactory signals in flavor processing, differential context effects in flavor mixture processing, synaesthesia, and contextual effects in the auditory system. In the future, I plan to use my experience to explore multi-sensory integration of auditory, gustatory, olfactory, tactile, and visual signals.
