Special Interests
My research primarily investigates the perception of 3-dimensional shape. The goal of this work is to understand how the brain interprets 2-dimensional images to create 3-dimensional mental representations. I also have an interest in cross-modal perceptual abilities, i.e., how well we can visually identify an object we have only touched but not seen or vice versa. I explore these ideas through the use of computer graphics, 3D printing, psychophysical experiments and cognitive modeling.
