Research Interests

My research focuses on the cognitive, perceptual, and neural mechanisms by which we represent visual information; specifically, high-level visual information like objects and faces.

A major goal of my research is to understand how we perceive and recognize faces, and how we can use this understanding to advance methods of reconstructing faces from memory. In my lab, we generate parametric stimuli and conduct behavioral experiments and computational modeling to predict human performance.
