About my research
I am interested in how the processing of information, both seen and remembered, is controlled. Generally speaking, the number of things that we could notice vastly exceeds the number of things that we do notice. My research focuses on the cognitive factors that shape what we see and remember.
Some more specific interests:
Mechanisms, limits, and consequences of the voluntary control of attention
Shortcuts, heuristics, and biases in attention
The memory systems involved in voluntary and involuntary control of attention
I received my PhD from the University of Toronto, working with Jay Pratt, and have joined the Visual Cognitive Neuroscience lab at Vanderbilt University, working with Geoff Woodman.
