Research Interests

My research involves human perceptual responses in virtual environments and basic study of stereoscopic vision. I am also interested in the measurement and analysis of eye movements and the applications of this technology.

We have excellent opportunities for good graduate students to work on on well-funded projects. Students interested in vision, virtual reality, or eye movements should contact me about these opportunities. I am also appointed to the graduate program in psychology and interested Psychology graduate students are also welcome to apply.

Please see the Lab web site for more details.
