Summary

Greg is currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Nevada, Reno’s Integrative Neuroscience program. He received his bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2018.

Research interests

Greg’s primary research interest involves understanding the mechanisms that underlie visual perception within neurotypical and clinical populations, such as those with migraine. Specifically, his goal is to investigate the relationship between low- and high-level vision. For example, what is the effect of uncomfortable stimuli on visual processing?

In order to accomplish this, he predominantly uses methods such as psychophysics, electroencephalography (EEG), electroretinography (ERG), as well as EEG and ERG concurrently. By utilizing these techniques, his aim is to uncover detailed perceptual mechanisms in both clinical and neurotypical populations.
