What is your general area of specialty or interest?

My general interest is in visual perception.

What are your specific research interests?

Specifically, I am interested in visual attention.

What are your current active research projects?

Currently, my research is exploring attentional selection - specifically how visual processing of attended objects differs from unattended objects.

Would you be willing to work with students as assistants with your research projects at this time?


If yes, how many?


Do you prefer to choose your research assistants yourself or are you willing to be approached by students?

I am willing to be approached by students.

In what aspects of your research are student assistants involved (e.g. data collection, data analysis, hypothesis formation, literature reviews, writing)?

It depends on the student's background and experience. Potentially - all of the above.

Are there any special comments/instructions you would like interested students to know about you, your projects, or what you are looking for?

I am looking for students with good computer skills. Ideally, they would have some computer programming experience (e.g., Visual Basic or C).
