Research Interests


I am interested in a wide range of research topics within the areas of perception, psychophysics, and cognition, including:
1) Contextual factors that influence a participant's responses in perceptual experiments
2) Distinctions between automatic and effortful processes, especially as related to event frequency judgments
3) Factors that influence incidental memory and effects of effort on memory
4) Factors that influence the perception and recognition of faces
5) Distinctions between numerosity and frequency judgments
