Research in my lab explores how we identify objects and events in the real world, where both the observer and the environment change over time. The brain must process a dynamic stream of sensory information and efficiently parse this information to reach conclusions about the presence or absence of noteworthy objects to which actions should be directed. By studying the activity of neural circuits involved in this process, we aim to better understand mechanisms underlying perception.
I received my AB in Computer Science and Psychology from Yale College and my PhD in Cognitive Science at Brown. Following postdoctoral fellowships at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and the Max Planck Institute in Tuebingen, Germany, I returned to Brown as a faculty member in the Department of Neuroscience in 2000.
