Since 2000, my UW laboratory has studied the neural bases of human visual cognition, with an emphasis on working memory and attention in healthy young human adults. Experimental methods include psychophysics, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS; alone and in combination with simultaneous fMRI and EEG), and computational modeling.

Diversity Statement and Training:
I am a passionate champion for increasing equity and transparency in how we carry out and communicate our science and try to impart these values on trainees. This is demonstrated in many initiatives that I have undertaken since becoming Editor–in–Chief at the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience (JoCN) in 2020. One of my first acts was to disband the journal’s largely honorific, and overwhelmingly male and North American, Editorial Board and replacing it with Consulting Editors, a newly created group of relatively early–career scientists selected to increase geographical and gender representation at the journal.
