My main research interests are vision research and how the brain combines information from the different senses (multisensorial perception). I use primarily behavioural methods, but also electrophysiology and functional brain imaging. My research has both clinical and technological applications.
After obtaining a Ph.D. at New York University in visual neuroscience with Michael Landy and John Krauskopf, I continued as a post-doctoral researcher at NYU with John Krauskopf and Larry Maloney, before joining the Institute of Ophthalmology (UCL) as a postdoc to work with Michael Morgan.
In 2001, I was awarded a Senior National Research Council Fellowship to work at NASA Ames (CA) on computational vision models. Since then I have held visiting professorships at the University of Regensburg and at the Computer Vision Centre at the University of Barcelona and an honorary professorship at the University of Science & Technology, Liaoning, China.
