My research focuses on visual cognition, including face and object perception/recognition, visual attention, and the effects of experience on high-level visual processes (learning and memory). I primarily use psychophysical techniques, but my research has also involved the use of electrophysiology, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and eye tracking.
I graduated with a B.A. degree in psychology from the University of Iceland and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from Brown University (emphasis: systems/cognitive neuroscience; primary advisor: David Sheinberg; secondary advisor: Michael J. Tarr). I am currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Iceland.
