Interests

I use eye-tracking, motion tracking and different behavioral tasks to study how sensory information is integrated together under different circumstances. Focusing predominantly on spatial perception, I look at how our different sensory modalities are combined, how momentary gaps in perception are filled and how what we see is affected by both our memory of events in the past and our predictions of what is likely to happen in the future. From this data I can then develop and test different hypotheses about the potential brain mechanisms responsible for resolving these perceptual challenges.
