Research Interests

I am interested in visual categorization, particularly its neural bases and temporal dynamics.  I aspire to work on understanding temporal information from freqeuency-tagging (also known as fast periodic visual stimulation, FPVS) and increasing its application to a variety of research questions, applying the techniques of (S)EEG, fMRI, and behavior.  I pursued these goals in doctoral studies between UCLouvain and the University of Nevada, Reno (USA), under co-supervsion with Fang Jiang (Jiang Plasticity Lab) and Michael Webster (Visual Perception Lab).  For three years prior, I worked as a research assistant/lab manager in the Face Categorization Lab.
