Dr. LoVoi has expertise in human cognition, attention, and perception with an emphasis on color perception, attention, and signal detection and response. With a background in cognitive neuroscience, she has used a combination of behavioral measurements, electrophysiological recordings, and neuroimaging to examine cognitive and perceptual processes and how they shape behavior. 

Dr. LoVoi applies her expertise in perceptual and attentional processes to investigate how humans interact with products and the environment, including transportation accidents and slips, trips, and falls.

Dr. LoVoi earned her Ph.D. in Psychology at The Graduate Center, CUNY with an emphasis in cognitive neuroscience. Her doctoral research primarily focused on characterizing the spatial and temporal characteristics of visual perception that is induced through non-invasive brain stimulation. Her secondary research focused on the role that color plays in attention capture, particularly under conditions of inattention. Dr. LoVoi has also been an instructor at the City University of New York (CUNY) and has taught courses in perception, cognition, cognitive neuroscience, and general psychology.
