Supervision Statement

  • I am fascinated by a wide range of research topics. So if you have a really good idea that is somehow connected to vision, social norms, behavioral change, perceptual learning, learning in general or anything that is related to any of my previous research papers, feel free to pitch it to me.

    In the near future, I am expecting to focus more on perceptual learning and behavioural change and would very much like to work with students on these sorts of topics. I encourage you to contact me to discuss possible projects along these lines if you are potentially interested in doing a PhD with me.
