Junior Research Scientist
Sameer is interested in developing cognitive models of attention and decision making. His work in the Lab specifically investigates the interplay between top-down and bottom-up attention in the context of multimodal target acquisition. He has worked with Jarl Haggerty and John Choi to implement a virtual reality interface for the immersive display of audiovisual cues as well as the tracking of eye-movement. Sameer is also an avid history-buff. He is particularly interested in how recent discoveries in Neuroscience, especially in the fields of embodied and social cognition, might bear on questions that have riddled historians since time immemorial.
