My research interests focus around visual cognition and understanding the time-course and purpose of the complex neural networks that guide the attention we give to everyday stimuli and tasks. Even the simplest visual search requires significant processing that increases indefinitely as workload, complexity, and countless other task demands also intensify. Primarily, my research aims to disambiguate how basic attentional mechanisms adapt or are affected by the parameters of an experiment. The overall goal is to try to understand when, where, and why these processes unfold in a certain dynamic order in the human mind.
