I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute under the mentorship of Dr Santani Teng. My position is funded by The E. Matilda Ziegler Foundation for The Blind, Inc. My work at TengLab aims to study the neural mechanisms underlying Echolocation in blind people by combining Psychophysics, Electrophysiological (MEG & EEG), and computational techniques.

During my graduate studies, my work was focused on elucidating the neural correlates of Global Feature-Based Attention, and Reward-Based Selection in visual cortical areas by using Psychophysics and Electrophysiological techniques (MEG & EEG).  My previous experience also includes some work on memory and ageing processes.
