Chris Davoli received his B.S. in Psychology from Davidson College (2004) and his Ph.D. in Psychology from Washington University in St. Louis (2010). After completing his postdoctoral training at the University of Notre Dame, he joined the Department of Psychology at Central Michigan University in Fall 2013.

My research focuses on the factors that shape our experience of the visual world. Through this approach, I seek to advance our understanding of vision as a malleable process. Of particular interest is how posture and action can be used to direct—and perhaps even improve—our perception, attention, and cognition. Projects in my laboratory consider both the basic mechanisms of visual perception and attention (using eye tracking technology and psychophysical techniques) and the higher-level consequences of dynamic vision (using cognitive paradigms). Through the incorporation of interactive technology and flexible means of visual presentation, my laboratory is designed to support the study of active humans performing tasks in dynamic environments.
