My primary research interest is perception—how we are able to gain information about the world through our senses. Together with students and collaborators, we use behavioural (psychophysics) and neural recording (fMRI and EEG) measures to explore fundamental questions about how we perceive the world.

Our current research focuses on three main topics:

  • The role of shape-from-motion in the visual perception of surface lightness
  • The capacity of the visual system to tolerate variations in illumination
  • The incorporation of visual information into auditory judgements of loudness

We are currently seeking a postdoc to join the lab. The postdoc is for 18 months, and will involve working on behavioural and fMRI projects relating to surface, object, and scene perception. Here is the job ad. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
