My research focuses on human face recognition and spatial navigation, aiming to unravel how people perceive and represent faces and spaces, and how people use these representations to recognize faces and to navigate between places.
I use multiple research approaches to address these questions, including psychophysics, virtual environment, eye-movement tracking, computational modeling, and functional MRI.

Holistic face processing represents a general principle that guides visual perception of both static and moving faces.
Face-like holistic processing can be activated by salient Gestalt information in non-face objects without any training, challenging prevailing theories.
Holistic face processing is mediated by perceptual organization of facial shape information, but not facial surface information.
Environmental stability affects the role of path integration as a backup or reference system in human navigation..
Visual landmarks and path integration follow different principle of cue interaction to guide navigation accuracy and navigation precision.
