"Robert G Alexander"

Dr. Alexander is investigating how visual experience is driven by our distinctive patterns of eye movements. His research program aims to improve health and save lives, by improving performance in critical situations (such as finding tumors in x-rays), by tailoring therapeutic treatments, and by finding biomarkers for early clinical diagnosis. This is accomplished through explorations into the relationships between perception, cognition, and gaze behavior in both experimental and applied contexts.
