Examination of invariant properties of human perception and information processing across visual, auditory and tactile modalities, with an emphasis on the underlying neural mechanisms. Studies include work on pattern recognition in speech perception and on the role of attention and feedback mechanisms. The lab also is working on micro-processor based assistive technologies for individuals with developmental and acquired disabilities which limit mobility and speech.

“I knew the University of Iowa was perfect for me after meeting the friendly faculty and students. I felt as if I were right at home. There are so many different opportunities that the university has to offer. Iowa City as a whole is a great place to live. The city offers numerous amounts of places to study, as well as multiple places to go for entertainment. Iowa City is definitely molded towards the benefits of the students. ”
