I study the neuroscience of perception, memory, and action in infancy and early childhood, using behavioral, neuroimaging (EEG and MRI), and computational methods. I am particularly interested in perceptual and motor development and brain mechanisms of complex motion perception. Students with strong science backgrounds who are interested in joining my research team should complete an application. Separate pages describe my research and my lab.

I am co-leading an effort to transform developmental science through the creation of infrastructure that enables the open sharing of video and other temporally dense forms of research data. Follow the links for more details about the Databrary.org project and the open source video coding tool, Datavyu.

Teaching and Advising

I teach PSYCH 260 (formerly PSY 203) -- Neurological Foundations of Human Behavior, PSYCH 490, and PSY 511 -- Foundations of Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience.


I grew up in Denver, Colorado. I earned a B.A. in Cognitive Science from Brown University and my M.S. and Ph.D.degrees in Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience from Carnegie Mellon University where I participated in the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC) graduate program. You may find more information about me on my Personal page or my blog.
