Meet the Editors

"My research examines the cognitive and neurological processes underlying object and face recognition. I am particularly interested in questions related to how experience influences the way we perceive and recognize objects in the world. To address these questions, we have been studying the perceptual processes involved in expert object recognition, such as birdwatching, and face recognition - a kind of perceptual expertise in which we are all experts. In a related line of research, we have been working with children with autism in a program designed to improve their face recognition abilities."

"My research examines the mechanisms underlying visual attention, in particular how it is shaped by top-down mechanisms. Together with a team of talented researchers I focus on questions such as how what we are looking for is represented in the brain, how top-down visual biases are controlled and how it dynamically changes as a function of task demands or learning. We use a range of techniques including eye tracking, EEG, and fMRI to answer these questions."
