Statement: I'm currently working on a project involving the game of baseball, the role of the pitcher, the batter, and the baseball in flight. I'm particularly interested in the trajectory and visual cues that the batter uses to determine where the ball will end up and how we perceive this process. For example, the batter relies on cues such as the blurring pattern the moving ball makes, the posture of the pitchers, the point at which the pitcher releases the ball and expectations derived from previous pitches. In this series I am actively investigating how this can relate to broader understandings of human sight and perception.
