I'm interested in the interaction of perception and action. I study how eye movements
influence the perception of space, how the construction of a 3d representation of a
visual scene is influenced by changes in eye position, and how the brain implements
optimal strategies to coordinate the active exploration of space and the extraction of
binocular visual information. The methods I use include behavioral experiments,
psychophysics, mathematical modeling and brain imaging using fMRI.
