Full research profile


I obtained my PhD in Cognitive Psychology at the Department of Psychology and the Center for Cognitive Science at Rutgers University. My dissertation, supervised by Prof. Eileen Kowler, was on the linkage between perceptual representation and eye-movement control. I did postdoctoral research in 3D perception with Prof. Martin Banks at the University of California, Berkeley, where I was supported by an NIH Ruth Kirshtein Postdoctoral Fellowship. I started a assistant professor position at the department of Psychology at the Rochester Institute of technology in 2005 and moved to St. Andrews in 2007.
