Research Interests

I am interested in exploring the temporal dynamics of visual processing in the natural environemnt.  I aspire to work on understanding fast periodic visual stimulation (FPVS) and increasing its application to a variety of research questions, using recording techniques including EEG, fMRI, and psychophysics.  In pursing these goals as well as a stronger general foundation in science, I am starting my doctoral studies in 2015 between the Université catholique de Louvain and the University of Nevada, Reno, under the supervision of Drs. Bruno Rossion, Fang Jiang, and Michael Webster.

Previously, from September 2012 to August 2015, I worked as a research assistant/lab manager in the Face Categorization Lab.  I was then new to the field of face categorization, having previous research assistant experience in social cognitive neuroscience and human genetics.  I was first interested in the psychology and neuroscience of how faces are identified, generalized, and remembered.  In assisting with various research projects in the lab, I looked forward to gaining exposure to many fascinating research questions and methodologies.
