I apply machine learning techniques and representational similarity analysis to search for an integrated view of how the visual system recognizes objects and scenes.

I work predominantly on human data acquired with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG). I also relate human brain data quantitatively to monkey electrophysiology data and computer models.
