Research interests

How does the visual brain direct our eyes to the most interesting things in front of us, like faces, hands or text? Traditionally, the visual brain is thought to process ‘what’ and ‘where’ in separate streams, but human gaze behaviour shows that the two come together in ways we don’t yet understand.

Another question I’m interested in is how and why our perceptions of the visual world differ from each other. Does the individual way in which we see the world shape who we are and how we interact with each other?

To investigate these questions I currently use behavioural experiments and eye-tracking, as well as decoding and encoding models applied to fMRI data.
