Research Interests

My two primary areas of research are in perceptual psychology and quantitative methodology. Overall, my research focuses on how perceptual experiences unfold over time, and how we can best measure and model these perceptual dynamics. I have a particular interest in pain perception (in the context of both acute and chronic pain). My research investigates how pain may impact and interact with other perceptual, cognitive, and affective processes. In my quantitative methods work, I develop and implement statistical tools to model dynamic processes captured in repeated measures data, with an emphasis on intensive, intraindividual time series methods, and Bayesian statistics. My program of research aims to develop novel statistical/quantitative methods that can be applied to further understand how we perceive and interact with the world around us.
