Jessica Ip

I’m a PhD student in Cognitive Science at Brown University studying the electrophysiological and behavioral markers of multisensory perception in the brain over the course of healthy and pathological aging, advised by Dr. William Heindel and Dr. Elena Festa at the Aging and Cognition Lab.

I completed my bachelor's degree in Cognitive Systems at the University of British Columbia where I studied the influence of low-level visual attributes on the perception of graphical displays at the UBC Visual Cognition Lab, performed UX research in a cross-institutional collaboration between the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the UBC Sensory Perception and Interaction Research Group on the Haptipedia project, and pursued information visualization and user research on the ValueCharts project at the Laboratory for Computational Intelligence. A central theme of my research experiences has been in vision, with my earliest research internship experience studying retinitis pigmentosa and macular degeneration in Xenopus laevis photoreceptors at the UBC Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences in the VGH Eye Care Center.
