Research Description:

My lab investigates how hierarchical neural circuits transform ambiguous sensory signals into accurate and precise object representations that guide motor actions. These transformations are nonlinear optimization problems that must be solved for us to interact with our surroundings. Our studies with human and nonhuman primates employ a synergistic combination of behavioral tasks, highdensity neuronal recordings, neuroimaging, and modeling. The results provide insights into the neurocomputational basis of sensory perception, disorders of vision and balance, as well as psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders. As a faculty member at UW–Madison, my work has focused on 3D vision, sensorimotor transformations, context-dependent sensory processing, and the neuro-computational basis of autism.
