About me

Background
I received my PhD from Utrecht University, the Netherlands working on binocular vision, in particular on temporal aspects of stereopsis. I have held a post-doctoral research position at McGill University, Canada (2005-2009) working on contour-shape perception and an FWO-Research Foundation Flanders fellowship at the University of Leuven, Belgium (2009-2012) working on texture-shape processing. I am currently a Senior Lecturer here in Stirling.

Research interests
I am interested in human visual perception and how the brain processes visual information. Visual processing is a hierarchical process of feature extraction and combination, with features increasing in complexity as one progresses along the visual pathway from retina to primary visual cortex and then to intermediate and higher visual areas. My studies of human vision focus on the relationship between the initial stages of vision that detect simple features and the intermediate-to-higher stages of vision that connect these features to form contours, textures, surfaces and shapes. I study human vision in both perceptual and physiologcal terms by using psychophysics, EEG/ ERP and computational modelling. For more details about my research see Research.
