Hi! I started in the Whitney Vision and Action Lab as an undergraduate research assistant. I graduated in June 2008 from UC Davis with a BA in psychology and began working in the lab as a Junior Specialist/Lab Manager. I am fascinated by the many ways in which the external world is represented throughout our visual system and love discovering the mechanisms behind visual illusions, adaptation aftereffects as well as object motion and tracking. I am currently working on a study concerning object size and aftereffects.
The Whitney Lab Outreach program is another main focus of mine where I work directly with participating schools, scheduling and organizing exciting presentations. We have been presenting at local middle and high schools since May 2009. If you are an educator interested in having us visit your school, please check out the Whitney Lab Outreach website for more information.
