Vision-Related Research:

My vision-related work has two threads:

  1. Vision loss and health psychology
  2. Teaching in higher education with vision loss

Non-Vision-Specific Research:

My non-vision-specific work has focused primarily on how people understand speech and how memory contributes to our ability to do so.
