I am a Beckman Institute Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and in the Department of Psychology at the University of Alberta. I received my PhD in 2011 from the Brain and Cognition Division of the Department of Psychology at the University of Illinois in the Cognitive Neuroimaging Lab of Drs. Monica Fabiani and Gabriele Gratton, with the support of a Post Graduate Scholarship from the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada. I received my B.A. (Honours; First in Graduating Class) in Canada from the University of Victoria in 2007, completing my honours thesis there under the supervision of Dr. Clay Holroyd.
My field of research is the cognitive neuroscience of visual awareness, attention, learning and memory. I am currently affiliated with the Cognitive Neuroimaging Lab of Drs. Monica Fabiani and Gabriele Gratton, the Attention and Perception Lab of Dr. Diane Beck, and the Brain Rhythms Lab of Dr. Clayton Dickson at the University of Alberta. I am affiliated with both the Cognitive Neuroscience and Human Perception and Performance groups at the Beckman Institute.
