Research Summary:

I am interested in the relationship between the initial stages of vision that detect local features such as edges, bars and surface markings, and intermediate stages that link up those features to form contours, textures and surfaces. A full understanding of this process involves research in spatial vision, colour vision, stereopsis, texture perception, brightness & lightness perception and transparency. I use psychophysical methods in conjunction with natural scene analysis.
