Story
Tagline
"Everyone knows what attention is..." - William James, 1890 on attention
Introduction
I am a graduate of the University of British Columbia, with a Bachelor of Arts in (Cognitive) Psychology. I also recently completed an 8 month internship in Cognitive Engineering, where I co-authored a paper on subset search using spatial frequency. I am presently working as a user researcher at SAP in Germany.

My interests involve how we discern relevant from irrelevant information in our environment. I am particularly interested in object-based attention, and low-level visual processes, such as object spatial frequency and blob detection, and how these processes guide attention.

As of 2007, I have worked with Dr. Robert Rauschenberger (Siemens Corporate Research), Dr. Alan Kingstone (University of British Columbia), and Dr. Michael Dodd (University of Nebraska)
