Perceptual processes are highly subject to top-down influences such as expectation, attention, task, and memory.
The desire to understand how top-down factors modulate visual perception has been the driving motivation behind my research.
At the University of Minnesota, I am working with
Cheryl Olman and
Essa Yacoub to examine layer-specific functional magnetic resonance
imaging (fMRI) responses in early visual cortex.
As a PhD candidate at Macquarie University, I worked with
Anina Rich, and
Alexandra Woolgar researching the role of cortical feedback on peripheral vision using fMRI and behavioral psychophysics in conjunction with eye tracking.
