I received my Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the supervision of Prof. Diane M. Beck. As a member of the Scene-Classification Group, my graduate work primarily focused on the perception and representation of natural scenes. I also researched eye movements, attention, and visual search with Prof. Alejandro Lleras.

This was followed by postdoctoral research with Prof. Miguel Eckstein at the University of California, Santa Barbara. There, I investigated visual attention and memory in natural environments.

I now work at the FAA’s William J. Hughes Technical Center. Here, I conduct research on how changes to equipment, displays, and procedures affect aviation safety.

I use behavioral measures (e.g., response times, accuracies, and eye movements), functional neuroimaging, and computational methods to try to understand how we understand and interact with our environment.
