Our grad program is a good example of what happens when smart people work together in a cooperative manner. The total becomes much more than a sum of the parts. With the help of others, I can expand my research to explore the potential of vision, the mind, and human nature. The benefits of this are clear in rapid growing areas of science, such as Vision Science -- e.g., the Vision Sciences Society, VSS

Here are my rules for Interdisclinary science

Listen well and read widely

Appreciate good theories and the perspectives they provide

Appreciate the constraints of evidence (but honor evidence blindly)

Create and follow through

Ask questions and be open; no individual knows it all
