Hello. I'm a Professor in the Department of Psychology at Yale University, and director of the Yale Perception and Cognition Laboratory. My lab members and I are interested in all aspects of perception, cognition, and how they relate to each other. Some of the current research questions we are exploring include:
  • How does the mind construct our conscious visual awareness?
  • How is 'core knowledge' expressed in perception and cognition, in both infants and adults?
  • How, when, and why do we perceive causality, animacy, and time?
  • How do perception, memory, and learning interact to produce our experience of the world?
  • How can we efficiently communicate information by exploiting the nature of perception?
  • How do perception and cognition interact (and fail to interact)?
