Research Interest

I am a senior undergraduate Psychology major. I work with Alina investigating serial dependence, a proposed mechanism that is thought to facilitate the visual system's ability to create a stable and coherent percept of the world despite constantly changing visual information, such as luminance and motion. My senior thesis will investigate how the strength of serial dependence is affected in tasks that require memory accuracy. My thesis is currently being supported by a fellowship with the UC Berkeley College of Letters & Sciences.
