I am a research scientist working in Marty Banks's lab in the School of Optometry and Vision Science program at University of California, Berkeley.
- Designing and developing models for next-generation display technologies, including varifocal and light field displays
- Producing perceptually realistic retinal image projections via computational modeling
- Pictorial and ocular depth cues and how they interact with perception in VR, AR, and MR environments with head-mounted displays (HMDs)
- Perceptual and computational modeling of 3D shape from shading, texture, and specular reflections
- Haptics and human-machine interfaces
- Psychophysical modeling of tactile perception
- Assistant Project Scientist, 2018-present - Optometry and Vision Science - University of California, Berkeley with Marty Banks and the Center for Innovation in Vision and Optics (CIVO)
- Postdoc, 2015-2018 - Optometry and Vision Science - University of California, Berkeley with Marty Banks and Gordon Love. Previously with Hany Farid
- Postdoc, 2012-2015 - Experimental Psychology - Justus-Liebig-University Giessen, Giessen, Germany with Roland W. Fleming and Steven W. Zucker
- Ph.D., 2012 - Cognitive Psychology and Perceptual Science - Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, USA with Manish Singh
- M.S., 2010 - Cognitive Psychology - Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, USA with Manish Singh
- B.A., 2006 - Physics & Psychology - University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, USA
I received my B.A. with a dual major in Psychology and Physics at the University of Virginia in 2006. I received my M.S. and Ph.D. in Psychology and a certificate in Cognitive Science at Rutgers University in 2012 while working in the Perceptual Science program. While at Rutgers, I was an IGERT fellow for two years, funded under a National Science Foundation Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship grant. At Justus-Liebig-University Giessen, I was funded for two years under an NSF-BMBF Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience (CRCNS) grant.
