Research Intrests & Bio

My research interests encompass a broad range of cognitive science topics with my predominant concentration being on mathematical models of learning and categorization.  In the MAPLAB, I am investigating the causes of feature confusions and discounting in short-term visual priming.  Previous research has suggested that prime and target features are confused when presented visually and that features known to be from the prime are discounted.  I am exploring experimental factors that inhibit (or facilitate) this feature confusion and discounting to gain addition understanding of short-term visual feature processing in humans.
