ABOUT ME

 

Biography

My research is concerned with understanding how we perceive the world we live in. Our brain infers the physical properties of the world through information it receives from the six senses. I seek to identify the sources of sensory information that are important for our perceptual experience of object form and motion.

Education

    • 2005 PhD in Psychology, The University of Sydney
    • 1998 BSc (Honours-I), The University of Sydney

RESEARCH

 

Research Goals

        • Determine image properties for the perception of surfaces and materials
        • Understand multi-sensory mechanisms for the perception of self-motion
        • Explore the role of eye movements and retinal motion in perception

Research in Detail

I use a range of techniques to identify the image properties we rely on to perceive objects and materials in our visual world. These techniques include computer graphics, image analysis, computational modelling and psychophysics. Eye-movement recording is also an important aspect of my research, as it is possible to understand how perception is influenced by retinal motion generated when we move through the environment. 

Research Grants

          • 2014 Kim J, ARC Future Fellowship
          • 2010 Anderson BL, Kim J, Fleming R, ARC Discovery Project

Current Student Projects (PhD and Honours)

The illusory experience of self-motion perception (vection)

The visual perception of surfaces and materials

Improving image analysis of various types of morphology in ophthalmology and clinical optometry

Supervision Opportunities/Areas

I am happy to discuss supervision of projects in any of the above fields of research.

Advice for prospective students

If you have ever wondered why the world appears the way that it does and would like to conduct research to figure out how our brain provides you with this experience, then please feel free to contact me.
