Hello

my name is Nelson Roque.

I have a special interest in visual attention, focusing on:

  • how to reliably measure it,

  • how it relates to individual difference factors (e.g., age, sleep)

  • and translating insights from theoretical work in visual attention to applied contexts (e.g. medication errors).

ABOUT ME

In May of 2018, I graduated from Florida State University with a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology, working under the advisement of Dr. Walter R. Boot.

Through the Pathways T32 Program at Penn State's Center for Healthy Aging, working with Dr. Martin Sliwinski, I will explore the temporal stability of visual attention and its relation to situational and environmental factors, through the use of an ecological momentary assessment design and burst measurement techniques.
