Sage Boettcher is a graduate student in the Brain & Cognition Lab, supervised by Kia Nobre. Sage's research explores how theories of predictive coding fit into more complex tasks and stimuli. She uses EEG and MEG to answer these questions.
Sage graduated with degrees in Psychology & Statistics from the University of Delaware where she worked in James Hoffman's Visual Cognition Group on the neural correlates of Emotion Induced Blindness. Following her bachelor studies she went on to work in Jeremy Wolfe's Visual Attention Lab as a research assistant studying the intersection of visual and memory search in what is known as Hybrid Search. Before arriving at Oxford, Sage completed her Masters in Interdisciplinary Neuroscience at Goethe University of Frankfurt where she worked with Melissa Vo on understanding the role of anchor objects within scenes.
Sage is funded by the Medical Sciences Graduate School Studentship and a member of Somerville College.
