Joy Geng chosen as APS Fellow

This honor is awarded to "APS members who have made sustained outstanding contributions to the science of psychology in the areas of research, teaching, service, and/or application. Fellow status is typically awarded for one’s scientific contributions, but may also be awarded for exceptional contributions to the field through the development of research opportunities and settings."

Professor Geng’s research focuses on how goal-directed and sensory-driven information are integrated to determine what we perceive. The purpose of her work is to understand the mechanisms of attentional control that flexibly balance the ability to select task-relevant information and suppress irrelevant distractors.
