My primary research interest is in visual perception, especially stereopsis and motion perception. I’m also doing research in a bunch of other things, most notably on assessing communicative development in infants and toddlers. For more info on that, see the website of the Early Language Project. I’ve also done work on the efficacy of various kinds of artificial hearing devices for deaf kids, the language skills of monolingual and bilingual (Spanish–English) children in the Dade County, Florida, public school system, and the development of smart strategies for conducting perceptual evaluations (e.g., screening infants for hearing loss). In several of these fields, I wind up devising novel techniques for statistical analysis or decison-making.
