I just graduated from Yale University and am now enjoying some time as an itinerant scholar. This fall, you can find me at The Donders Institute and the Max Planck Institute in Nijmegen, Netherlands.

My core area of research is visual perception, with an emphasis on how perception interacts with other cognitive processes. I use a combination of behavioral and functional neuroimaging methods to explore both the nature of conscious experience and the neural representations that underlie perception. At Yale, I worked with Marvin Chun in the Visual Cognition Neuroscience Laboratory and with Brian Scholl in the Perception and Cognition Laboratory. I was supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. Prior to coming to Yale, I studied spatial cognition with Russell Epstein at the University of Pennsylvania and received my B.A. from Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

This interactive network features all the co-author relationships for abstracts submitted over the last 14 years (2001-2014). Each node is a unique author and each edge that connects the nodes represents a co-authored abstract. The larger and darker the node, the more abstracts the individual has presented. The thicker the edge between two nodes, the more abstracts the two individuals have co-authored. The strength of these connections dictates the clusters in the network. (There are nearly 14,000 authors and 42,000 co-author relationships, so the network is best explored (patiently) on a computer and not a mobile device.)
