My recent work has focused on bridging questions in basic vision science and applied vision and behavioral questions in the context of driving. I have collaborated extensively with the MIT AgeLab on a range of work in this space, examining topics as diverse as typeface legibility under different conditions, how quickly a driver can perceive the road environment, and the strengths and limitations of peripheral vision in a driving context. Prior to being a postdoc at MIT, I was a graduate student with David Whitney at UC Berkeley, where my research focused on information acquisition around the time of a saccade.
