New paper out: “A unifying model of orientation crowding in peripheral vision”

My latest paper is now available online at Current Biology. Please email me for a copy of the PDF if you don’t have access. In the paper, we summarise a new method, data and model that help to quantify the limits of peripheral vision.

I’ll write a longer blog post soon with some more detailed information, but for the time being, this fantastic press release written by Craig Brierley at University of Cambridge gives a great overview of the key findings:

“At the edge of vision: Struggling to make sense of our cluttered world.”

Moving to Cambridge Uni

I was recently awarded an NHMRC CJ Martin Fellowship, which provides my salary for four years. In June 2015, I’m moving to the UK, to spend two years in the lab of Tristan Bekinschtein at the Department of Psychology at the University of Cambridge. Then I’ll head back to Oz to work again with Jason Mattingley, this time at the Queensland Brain Institute.

New website up

I’ve moved my research website to WordPress. I’m still ironing out the bugs and looking for design improvements.
