Shortly after completing my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at McGill University, I took up an internship position at the Faubert lab. Here, I had the opportunity to familiarize myself with the laboratory’s many different and innovative streams of research. In addition, this experience led me to continue down the path of vision research—this time focusing on the field of low vision under the supervision of Pr Olga Overbury. These experiences ultimately cemented my desire to further my education as a researcher and thus I began my graduate studies under the supervision of Pr Jocelyn Faubert and Delphine Bernardin. As of 2017, I have begun work on projects investigating the transfer of multiple object tracking performance to different ecological, real-world tasks as well as the use of neurofeedback to further enhance this performance.
