"My research explores how we interact with the sensory world in various everyday activities (e.g., searching for objects, navigating the environment, reading comprehension) and the underlying neural mechanisms through the study of eye movements, pupillometry, and other physiological measurements such as heart rate and galvanic skin response, in combination with neuroimaging and brain stimulation tools."
