My background is in psychology, with a strong influence from maths (I started on a Joint Honours degree but switched to straight psychology after 2 years). From there I went fairly heavily into neuroscience, studying sheep face recognition, then macaque V1 and LGN.

Since 2003 I’ve studied human visual perception, mostly looking at mid level vision using a wide range of techniques (psychophysics, fMRI, EEG and lots of computational modelling).
