Caterina Magri is a visual cognitive neuroscientist doing a postdoc in the Cognitive Science Department at Johns Hopkins University. She has a PhD in Psychology from Harvard University and a BA in Psychology and a MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Trento, Italy.
Her research combines behavioral, neural and computational methods to explore how our mind is capable of making sense and recognizing the things in the world surrounding us. Some examples of the questions she asks are: what kind of object properties are driving the organization of the occipito-temporal cortex? What type of mid-level features give rise to categorical representations in this region?
