I am an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Utah and the director of the Applied Visual Attention lab. Previously I was an NIH-sponsored post-doctoral researcher at Harvard Medical School in Jeremy Wolfe's Visual Attention Lab. In my research, I study the role that attention plays in a diverse array of paradigms using a variety of neuroscience and psychophysical methods. Some current active lines of research include:
My graduate work with Edward Vogel focused on fundamental questions about the neural underpinnings of memory and attention. This work is still ongoing and we are now working using EEG to understand the time-course of information transfer from one region of the brain to another. My post-doctoral work has led to some exciting new translational research that applies what we know about attention to diagnostic radiology. The ultimate goal is to decrease the error rate in diagnostic radiology.
