Research Program: Multisensory Communication
My research aims to understand dynamic processing of sensory stimuli. Focusing on the visual system I am interested in how and why an unchanging stimulus can look different to us depending on the context within which it is presented. I use both human psychophysical and neuroimaging techniques in my research.
I completed my PhD at the University of Sydney, School of Psychology and subsequently moved to Rutgers University, Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience (New Jersey, USA) to complete a Human Frontiers Science Program Post Doctoral Fellowship.
In 2009 I returned to the Brain and Mind Research Institute at the University of Sydney where I expanded my research focus to investigate perceptual changes that occur during psychosis. I joined Western Sydney University as a research lecturer in May 2010.
