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 Mark Williams, Anina Rich, and Alexandra Woolgar researching the role of cortical feedback on peripheral vision using fMRI and behavioral psychophysics in conjunction with eye tracking.
