Curriculum Vitae

My research involves the study of the neural mechanisms of perceptual category learning and perceptual experience in primarily developmental, but also adult, populations. Using both behavioral and electrophysiological methods (high-density event-related potentials), my work focuses on how specific visual experiences influence how infants and adults learn to recognize and categorize various types of objects (including faces, cars, birds, etc).
