I am a computational neuroscientist and vision scientist who is interested in understanding the relationship between perception, the neural code, and the statistical structure of the natural sensory environment. In particular, I am interested in (1) Developing adaptive stimulus design methods for real-time estimation of sensory processing models, and (2) Understanding how multiple visual cues are combined to perceive complex natural stimuli like edges, contours and shapes.

Courses Taught:

  • Physiological Psychology (PSB-4002)
  • Sensation & Perception (EXP-3202)
  • Survey of Analytical Techniques (PSY-3205)
