My interests are in the limitations of human perception and performance, specifically, the limitations of attention and how attention is located to multiple tasks, objects, or locations. I am also interested in questions concerning perception and memory, and how attention interacts with these processes. I use converging methods (behavioral and fMRI) in my research and hope to learn new cognitive research methods.
