Research Interests

I am interested in visual categorization, particularly its neural bases and temporal dynamics.  I aspire to work on understanding temporal information from freqeuency-tagging (also known as fast periodic visual stimulation; FPVS) and increasing its application to a variety of research questions, applying the techniques of (S)EEG, fMRI, and behavior.  Since August 2015, I am pursuing these goals in doctoral studies between the Université catholique de Louvain and the University of Nevada, Reno, under the supervision of Drs. Bruno Rossion, Fang Jiang (Jiang Plasticity Lab), and Michael Webster (Visual Perception Lab).  For three years prior, since September 2012, I worked as a research assistant/lab manager in the Face Categorization Lab.
