Curriculum Vitae


Research Overview

I am interested in visual perception, a cognitive function in which human brains outperform modern machines. Currently, I am working on how blink transient affects visual acuity. Despite strong visual suppression introduced by blinks, we propose that blinks and accompanying eye movements will redistribute spatial power of the visual input into the temporal domain, and power spectra analysis for this spatiotemporal power redistribution predicts that blinks would benefit visual acuity for low spatial frequencies.
