Research Summary

Using several approaches, my research examines how humans perceive, learn, and navigate spaces in natural, virtual, and visually impoverished environments. My research program focuses on visual space perception and spatial cognition, with an emphasis on the role of body representations and actions. This research serves two goals: to test mechanisms of perception-action processing underlying spatial perception and cognition and to apply this knowledge to address relevant real-world problems.
