How do we see? How can we recognize objects so effortlessly? To what degree is our perception influenced by our memories? How are our expectations influencing what we see?

As a cognitive neuroscientist studying visual perception, these are questions that I seek to address. Specifically, I study visual representations, object recognition and top-down influences on perception. I use a variety of behavioral, neuroimaging and computational techniques. I am also interested in memory, consciousness and artificial intelligence.

I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Turk-Browne Lab at Yale University.
