I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Psychology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I study human attention and eye-movements. I teach an introductory psychology course in the fall and spring and a sensation and perception course during the summer term.
My research interests cover a wide variety of topics related to vision. I am interested in the processes that guide our visual attention through the world both covertly and overtly. I am also interested in perceptual stability, or how we perceive a stable visual world across eye movements. I work in the University of Illinois' Human Attention Lab (formerly Vision Lab) with my advisors Drs. Alejandro Lleras and Simona Buetti. I conducted my dissertation research under Dr. David Irwin.
When I'm not teaching about human behavior and perception or researching the human attention system, I enjoy baking, cooking, knitting, and traveling.
