Main Focus

I am interested in how our subjective visual experience is reflected in activity patterns in our brains. Specifically, my research project aims to reveal shared representations of perceived objects underlying both human behavior and brain activity. To that end, we link cognitive computational models of object recognition with extensively sampled data from fMRI and crowdsourcing experiments.
