Gennadiy Gurariy, Ph.D.
(entered in late 2017)
I received my B.S. in psychology from John Carroll University. From there I moved to Nevada in order to pursue graduate studies at the University of Nevada, Reno. I earned an M.A. under Dr. Gideon Caplovitz and Dr. Marian Berryhill exploring the neural correlates of visual working memory. Subsequently, I earned a PhD working with Dr. Caplovitz exploring the spatiotemporal dynamics of object representation.
Broadly speaking, I am interested in object perception and visual working memory. Specifically, I am curious about the neural mechanisms by which information is grouped into objects and the manner in which neural resources (such as attention) are allocated to those objects so as to allow selection for further processes (such as working memory).
In my spare time, I enjoy being in nature. This includes hiking, backpacking, camping and sightseeing. Furthermore, this allows me to enjoy an even greater hobby: spending time with my dog. I also appreciate a good book and occasionally dabble in some creative writing projects. Finally, I’ve been an NBA fan for most of my life. While my loyalties lie with the precarious Cavaliers, I look forward to catching a few Bucks games.
