Expertise Summary

Motion Perception

My research aims to understand how humans, and other animals, can exploit the rich source of visual information provided when either objects move or we move our bodies (e.g. to predict the future locations of animated objects in the world, break camouflage, reveal three-dimensional scene structure and aid navigation).

Spatial Vision

My research in this area is directed at understanding the processes by which the outputs of neurones early in the visual pathways are decoded to perform biologically-relevant tasks such as segmenting the image into adjacent regions, boundaries and objects.

Stereopsis and binocular vision

My research in this field focuses on how the visual system extracts information about the three-dimensional spatial structure of the environment by comparing and using the different views of the world provided by the two eyes.

Research Summary

Broadly speaking my research addresses the psychological, neural and computational mechanisms underlying our ability to perceive the visual world. I primarily use psychophysical (behavioural) methods… read more

Current Research

Broadly speaking my research addresses the psychological, neural and computational mechanisms underlying our ability to perceive the visual world. I primarily use psychophysical (behavioural) methods to investigate vision, but other techniques include eye-movement recording, functional brain imaging (fMRI), brain stimulation, computational modeling and electrophysiology.
