"What does it mean, to see?" My primary interest in psychology, neuroscience, and computer science is cognition. My research has advanced from first examining cognition and attentional control within just the visual system to now examine how multisensory processing contributes to perception and cognition. Working with blind individuals in particular helps to reveal the role of visual experience for cognition and how the "visual" parts of the brain process other information in the absence of visual input. Much of this work has used virtual and augmented reality technology, such as a 'sensory-substitution' device (called The vOICe) that provides visual information by translating visual input into sound. I therefore study multiple sensory modalities and utilize multiple methods to best understand the psychological and neural underpinnings of cognition in human and non-human animals. I am also currently a researcher at Reality Labs Research (Meta / Oculus), where I am advancing eye tracking and other research for new applications in AR and VR.
