Postdoctoral Fellow
Research Area: Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience

I am broadly interested in the cognitive mechanisms involved in visual object recognition, memory, and categorization and how these processes are modulated by experience and expertise. A good deal of my research with my advisors Isabel Gauthier of the OPL and Tom Palmeri of the CatLab has used faces, a category for which we are all experts, to explore a behavioral marker of perceptual expertise, holistic processing. My dissertation at Vanderbilt explored the consequences of naming objects on memory for those objects.
