Research

My current research primarily focuses on the neuroscience and psychology of visual attention and perception in humans. I am also involved in research on the cognitive electrophysiology of meditation. Across all my research projects, the role I generally fall into involves managing data, scientific programming, software engineering, conducting and reporting data analyses, and producing publication-quality data visualizations.

Topics I have researched:

Cognitive disagreements

Visual and cognitive illusions

Attention capture

Visual perception

Neural correlates of visual consciousness

Cognitive electrophysiology of meditation

Sudden unexpected death in children

Neurofibrillary tangles and temporal lobe epilepsy

Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy

Novel Epilepsy treatments

Some highlights:

My paper, Scintillating Starbursts: Concentric Star Polygons Induce Illusory Ray Patternshas been met with much attention. My article is currently in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric, the leader in measuring the quality and quantity of online attention of academic publications. 

I am co-author of a paper that was chosen to be on the cover of the June 2020 volume of Neurology® – the world's most widely read and highly cited peer-reviewed neurology journal.
