My major research interests are in the fields of visual perception and visual cognition. My research focus recently has been in the area of Multiple Object Tracking. One current project is investigating how attention is distributed within moving objects, and in particular how this distribution is affected by stimulus probabilities. Another project is investigating how tracking of target objects is affected by additional objects in the field of view. I am also starting a new project in the area of Contextual Cueing, which will investigate the effects of previous experience on visual search.
