Research Interests

Official Graduation PhotoI study cognitive neuroscience at the University of Guelph in the Visual Cognitive Neuroscience Lab, under the supervision of Dr. Naseem Al-Aidroos.

I research human cognition; more specifically, I research the interplay of visual attention, memory, and perception using behavioural measures and electroencephalography. My Master’s thesis research investigates whether activated long-term memory supports attentional control settings.

As an undergraduate student, I researched human vocal motor control during singing. Specifically, I investigated real-time vocal compensation to a perturbation during production of a musical phrase versus during production of a single note.
