Principal Research Scientist

We do experiments and computational modeling of early-to-mid level human vision, with the aim of deriving predictive models which can be used for such applications as image compression, design of user interfaces, and design of information visualizations. Current interests include "pre-attentive" texture processing, visual search and visual saliency, perceptual organization, and the effect of display clutter on performance of visual tasks.
