research overview

  • My research focuses on the role of low-level visual and auditory mechanisms in the formation of higher-order perceptual representations of stimuli. I identify the characteristics of these mechanisms, especially in the spatial and temporal frequency domains. I am interested in the emergent properties of our perceptual system that are created by the dynamic interaction of multiple mechanisms. I am also interested in the application of signal detection theory to theoretical and applied problems.
