My research uses functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), quantitative MRI,
diffusion weighted imaging, ECoG, behavioral, as well as computational methods
to study the neural basis of visual perception and categorization, with the
ultimate goal of linking brain activations to human perception.

My research focuses on understanding:
(1) the cortical representations & computations that subserve visual recognition,
(2) the anatomical & connectivity constraints governing functional organization in the brain,
(3) how visual function and architecture changes across development & learning.
We are also interested in understanding how brain structure and function
may differ between typical and patient populations.
