Jie is a Postdoctoral Associate in the Perceptual Science Group @ MIT, working with Dr Ruth Rosenholtz. Her present work investigates peripheral vision and the related perceptual and cognitive functions, e.g. visual search, crowding, attentional allocation and visual-short memory.
She received my PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2010 from Brandeis University, where she studied visual short-term memory and visual attention. She utilized both behavioral, computational modeling and electrophysiological techniques to assess the fidelity of visual short-term memory for stimuli as simple as Gabor patches, as well as more complex stimuli such as synthetic faces and unfamiliar Mandarin names.
