Research

I work with Dr. Michele Rucci in the Active Perception Laboratory at the University of Rochester where the overarching theme of my research is understanding how eye movement behaviors interact with the anatomical and neurophysiological properties of the eye and visual system to enable high-acuity perception. My most recent efforts have focused on the contributions of microscopic eye movements in standard visual acuity tests and in peripheral discrimination tasks. This research integrates experimental and theoretical approaches to characterize realistic inputs to the retina during acquisition of fine spatial details and to elucidate the neural mechanisms underlying human visual perception.
