My work uses psychophysical methods and virtual reality to investigate perception and action. I am currently investigating how tactile perception is affected during arm movements, as well as how different aspects of visual environments impact self-motion perception. I have other research interests in visual perception, multisensory integration, and human factors in microgravity.
