I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at Drake University.
My research interests cover a variety of topics related to visual cognition. I am broadly interested in the processes that guide visual attention, particularly in the context of real-world scenes. I am also interested in the mechanisms that support the perception of a stable visual world across eye movements.
I organized the wonderful OPAM Conference in 2019 and 2020. OPAM is a satellite-conference to the Psychonomic Society's Annual Meeting. OPAM provides a venue for undergraduates, graduate students, and post-docs to present their work on Object Perception, Attention, and Memory to experts in the field.
I did my graduate work at the University of Illinois with Alejandro Lleras and Simona Buetti. David Irwin supervised my dissertation research. I completed a postdoc with John Henderson at the University of California-Davis.
