President, Vision Science Student Government
Born in Oakland, CA. Raised in Jalisco, Mexico and Richmond, California.
Received a BS in Psychology and MS in Human Factors & Ergonomics from San José State University.
My past research experiences, which includes 5 years in Dr. Stone’s Visuomotor Control Laboratory at NASA Ames Research Center and a summer in Dr. Brainard’s Color Vision Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania. When looking for a PhD program, I was intrigued by the interdisciplinary approach and immense talent offered by the Vision Science program at Berkeley.
I plan to develop, test, and refine computational models of information processing in the visual system.
My interest lie in perception for action and neuroplasticity. I'm intrigued by the sophisticated mechanisms in binocular vision and hand-eye coordination. I am interested in perceptual learning as an avenue for neuroplasticity in adults with abnormal visual development.
Cycling, rock climbing, reading, camping, practicing yoga, and spending time with the people I love.
