My research uses EEG and behavioral techniques in combination with virtual reality (VR) to understand the dynamics of our perceptual experiences. I received my PhD in cognitive neuroscience from the University of Illinois in 2020, where my thesis focused on the ways in which our expectations and prior experiences can affect our ongoing perception of the world in the moment. At the University of Oulu, I look to leverage the power of VR to bring new realism to old paradigms and address ongoing challenges, such as reducing cybersickness and increasing presence in virtual environments.
