Emma Wu Dowd, PhD
I received a BA in Linguistics from Harvard University in 2009, then continued graduate studies in the UK on a Marshall Scholarship. I received a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience from Duke University in 2016.
I am currently an NIH-funded postdoctoral fellow working with Julie Golomb at The Ohio State University.
What are the factors that influence how we see and remember the world? Using a variety of techniques (psychophysics, eye-tracking, computational modeling, and fMRI), my research focuses on the cognitive mechanisms that underlie how information is processed into an actionable representation of the world.
