Cognitive Modeling

During my graduate studies at Brown University I was a member of the Ersatz Brain Group and I worked on the computational modeling of cognitive processes and of vision in particular. In my MSc thesis I modeled pop-out phenomena in visual attention and in my doctoral dissertation I proposed a novel approach to visual recognition.
