Eye movements are an integral part of our interactions with the visual world. Tasks, such as reading, searching for objects, inspecting the contents of a visual scene, or navigating through the environment, require that we bring the eye quickly and accurately to important and useful locations. Remarkably, eye movements accomplish this goal with virtually no overt effort or awareness. 

The research in my lab is devoted to understanding how eye movements are planned, how they are carried out, and how we maintain the percept of a clear, stable and coherent world despite the continual changes in the visual array that eye movements produce. Our work emphasizes the active integration of eye movement planning with ongoing visual and cognitive processes, such as attention, perception and memory.
