Hello, I’m happy you’re here.
Thanks for stopping by!
I am currently a lecturer and consultant in the Psychology Department at Princeton University. My research program investigates the cognitive and neurological underpinnings of language processing. I am primarily interested in the mechanisms underlying visual word recognition and speech perception. On the weekends, I spend time with my other love: human memory. In this area, I am interested in semantics, metacognition/metamemory, and desirable difficulties.
My philosophy is that cognition is best understood by looking at both behavior and the brain. To get a better understanding of cognition I use a multi-method approach that involves using standard behavioral measurements (e.g., reaction times), eye-tracking, neuroimaging, and physiological and nuero-physiological indices (e.g., pupillometry,EEG/sEEG).
Most importantly, my research is conducted according to the principles of open science. In my research, I promote open science practices by making all my work accessible and reproducible.

Protocol for a Remote Webcam-based Eye-Tracking Experiment for Examining Visual Attention to Tobacco Marketing Materials
Abstract Background: Eye-tracking provides an objective way to measure attention, which can advance researchers’ and policymakers’ understanding of tobacco marketing influences. The development of remote webcam-based eye-tracking technology, integrated with online crowdsourcing studies, may be a cost-effective and time-efficient alternative to laboratory-based eye-tracking methods. However, research is needed to evaluate the utility of remote eye-tracking methods. Objective: To detail the process of designing a remote webcam-based eye-tracking experiment and provide data on associations between participant characteristics and the outcomes of completing the experiment.

Research Methods in Cognitive Science
Upper-level course I taught in Fall 2021. This course examined the basics of research as well as the different methods cognitive scientists use to examine the mind/brain. There was a focus on replication and open science and the class culminated in a final PscyhoPy project that had to run online.
