    Interested in visual awareness, event perception and perspective taking

    I study how the perceptual system attends to relatively few, informative properties in order to navigate the physical world, and also the ramifications when this system fails. Through a variety of behavioral, psychophysical and eye tracking experiments, I explore the features that facilitate or hinder our awareness of properties in everyday events. Some current projects explore the detection of changes in static and dynamic scenes, the formation of long-term memories from written narrative, the perception of time in ongoing events and the capture of attention by social stimuli. This research often intersects with my interests in law, the psychology of religion, and cognitive film theory.
