Kassandra R. Lee is a graduate member of the Neuroscience program, where she has worked in Dr. Michael Webster's lab since 2018. With previous interests and work in the field of vision and low vision research, her current research utilizes psychophysical, computational modeling, and neuroimaging methods to study the processing of high-level stimuli, such as faces. She is also investigating individual differences in color vision and perception. More generally, Kassandra's research questions aim to address how we perceive and adapt to our visual world.
