Research Overview

The visual world contains more information than our brains can handle. My research is focused on the computational mechanisms that enable the brain to process goal-relevant visual information and to block out distractions. This involves studying how information is represented and manipulated at the level of small populations of neurons in cerebral cortex, as well as how the activity of multiple cortical areas is coordinated at a brain-wide level. The overarching goal of this research program is to develop interventions that improve our ability to successfully navigate the visual world.
