I'm a cognitive neuroscientist with a focus on human vision. My research aims to build a quantitative understanding of the underlying neural organization and computations that support and limit our visual perception, and how these computations are modulated by higher cognition. For example, how is visual information processed at different stages of the human visual pathways? How does performing different tasks as an observer affect the stimulus representation in visual cortex? And how do these neural representations shape our visual perception? I use psychophysics, eye tracking, MRI, EEG/MEG techniques in combination with computational modeling to answer my research questions.

I'm currently a postdoctoral associate in the Computational Visual Neuroscience (CVN) Lab, working with Dr. Kendrick Kay at the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research (CMRR), University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. I am also a visiting postdoctoral scholar in the Vision and Perception Neuroscience Lab at Stanford University, where I continue to work with Dr. Kalanit Grill-Spector.

I received my PhD from New York University, working with Dr. Jonathan Winawer and collaborating with Dr. Marisa Carrasco. Prior to my graduate studies, I earned my MSc in cognitive neuroscience at the University of Amsterdam and BSc in psychology at Utrecht University.
