Profile Summary

My research focuses on understanding and modeling how low-level perceptual processes influence high-level cognitive decisions. I have developed a quantitative model of image exploration and lesion identification. I have applied this model to the identification of the reasons why some cancers in mammograms are correctly reported by breast radiologists, whereas others are correctly detected but dismissed.

Currently I am working on several projects in Digital Pathology. The introduction of virtual slides has created unique opportunities to study pathologists' process, as well as to gain insights into the relatively high inter-observer variability rates in histopathology.
