I am a 3rd year graduate student in the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences. I received my B.S. in Psychology at the University of Washington. Outside of academia, my interests include hiking, camping, traveling, surfing, snowboarding, pick-up basketball, softball, drawing, and catching the gorgeous sunsets on and around the UCSB campus.
My research interests span multiple domains of knowledge, including (but not limited to) sensation and perception, visual search and attention, information theory, psychophysics, neuroscience, deep learning, and computer vision. Broadly speaking, my current research focuses on how the physiological constraints of the human retina affect downstream visual memory processing (e.g., the massive differences in resource allocation, resolution, and sensitivity between the central/foveal and peripheral visual fields).
