    I study the mind, brain, and body with respect to how they contribute to human information processing and action. Past and current studies have elucidated mind-body interactions related to human perception, memory, language, reasoning, decision-making, attention, and movement control. To investigate these interactions, my work incorporates both empirical and theoretical research methodologies. My empirical research uses both behavioral (e.g. reaction time) measures from experimental cognitive psychology and psychophysiological (e.g. ERP) measures from cognitive neuroscience. My theoretical research uses computational and mathematical modeling. I am also interested in individual differences associated with personality traits, aging, and brain disorders.
