Research Summary/Interests

Most of my work centers on neuroimaging and schizophrenia. I am particularly interested in early visual processing and iterative visual processing deficits in patients with schizophrenia. My research utilizes fMRI, computational modeling, and psychophysics to characterize the nature of these dysfunctions.
