Attention is important for everyday tasks, but it can be difficult to focus for prolonged periods of time. The goal of this research is to understand how attention changes overtime and how well humans can sync themselves to these fluctuations. How can we increase the ability to maintain attention to benefit memory and perception?
Artificial intelligence has become a popular tool to assist humans in everyday tasks. The integration between humans and AI is not clearly understood. To benefit from AI, users must adopt a healthy dynamic between their decisions and that of the machines. Over reliance or under reliance on AI advice is a common problem that obscures the benefit of AI. This research focuses on when and how human decision making can benefit from AI assistance.
Memory interacts with a variety of cognitive processes, ranging from problem-solving to visual perception. I am interested in furthering the understanding of fundamental memory processes and cognition.
