I am working on a project “Eye movement control and scene representations” with my supervisors Mieke Donk and Martijn Meeter.
I studied Cognitive Systems (BSc) and Cognitive Psychology (MA) at the University of British Columbia, Canada. During my Masters I studied the perception of others’ eye movements. Alongside this work I engaged in multiple projects studying eye movements in natural scenes more generally, with a particular focus on new methodological techniques for revealing the temporal dynamics of eye movements. Together with Alan Kingstone, Walter Bischof and others, I adapted a method called Recurrence Quantification Analysis to the quantification of eye movement patterns.
I am interested predominantly in how people perceive and attend to their natural environments. How can we so effortlessly decide where to look in such a complex world? Currently, my projects focus mainly on eye movement control in natural scenes. I manipulate images, track eyes and develop new analysis techniques in order to understand the critical components that determine where people look and why.
