"I come from Des Moines. Somebody had to."
- Bill Bryson, The Lost Continent
I grew up in Calgary and Nanton, Alberta, Canada ("How small is Nanton?"). I received my B.Sc. in Psychology (1991) from the University of Calgary. There I worked with Don Kline in the Vision and Aging Lab and with Jane Raymond in the Perception and Cognition Lab. I did my Ph.D. in Psychology (1997) at Harvard with Patrick Cavanagh in the Vision Sciences Lab and became involved in neuroimaging through Nancy Kanwisher at the MGH NMR Center. From 1997-2001, I was a McDonnell-Pew postdoctoral fellow with Mel Goodale at the University of Western Ontario.
I am now a Professor in the Department of Psychology at Western University (also known as The University of Western Ontario) in London, Ontario. I do functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) at the Robarts Research Institute. I am a member of Western's Brain and Mind Institute and the Canadian Action and Perception Network (CAPnet).
