VSS Is Pleased to Announce

the Second Annual "Meet the Professors" Event

for Students and Postdocs


Monday, May 22

4:45 to 6:00 pm

(before the Demo Night BBQ) 

Breck Deck North



This will be an opportunity for a free-wheeling, open-ended discussion with
members of the VSS Board and a number of other professors. You might chat
about science, the meeting, building a career, or whatever comes up. 


The event will consist of two 30-minute sessions separated by a 15-minute
snack break. Please select a different professor for each session.
Participants must
<http://www.visionsciences.org/2017-meet-the-professors-form/> pre-register.
Space is limited and is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.


Professors and VSS Board Members

David Brainard* (University of Pennsylvania) studies human color vision,
with particular interests in the consequences of spatial and spectral
sampling by the photoreceptors and in the mechanisms mediating color

Eli Brenner* (Free University, Amsterdam) studies how visual information is
used to guide our actions.

Marisa Carrasco (NYU) uses human psychophysics, neuroimaging, and
computational modeling to investigate the relation between the psychological
and neural mechanisms involved in visual perception and attention.

Isabel Gauthier (Vanderbilt University) uses behavioral and brain imaging
methods to study perceptual expertise, object and face recognition, and
individual differences in vision.

Julie Harris (St. Andrews) studies our perception of the 3D world, including
binocular vision and 3D motion.  She also has an interest in animal

Sheng He (University of Minnesota & Institute of Biophysics, CAS) uses
psychophysical and neuroimaging (fMRI, EEG, MEG) methods to study
spatiotemporal properties of vision, binocular interaction, visual
attention, visual object recognition, and visual awareness.

Michael Herzog (EPFL - Switzerland) studies spatial and temporal vision in
healthy and clinical populations.

Todd Horowitz (National Cancer Institute) is broadly interested in how
vision science can be leveraged to reduce the burden of cancer, from
improving detection and diagnosis to understanding the cognitive complaints
of cancer survivors.

Lynne Kiorpes* (NYU) uses behavioral and neurophysiological approaches to
study visual development and visual disability. The goal is to understand
the neural limitations on development and the effects of abnormal visual

Dennis Levi (UC Berkeley) studies plasticity both in normal vision, and in
humans deprived of normal binocular visual experience, using psychophysics
and neuroimaging.

Ennio Mingolla (Northeastern) develops and tests of neural network models of
visual perception, notably the segmentation, grouping, and contour formation
processes of early and middle vision in primates, and on the transition of
these models to technological applications.

Concetta Morrone (University of Pisa) studies the visual system in man and
infants using psychophysical, electrophysiological, brain imaging and
computational techniques. More recent research interests have been vision
during eye-movement, perception of time and plasticity of the adult visual

Tony Norcia* (Stanford University) studies the intricacies of visual
development, partly to better understand visual functioning in the adult and
abnormal visual processing. 

Aude Oliva (MIT) studies human vision and memory, using methods from human
perception and cognition, computer science and human neuroscience (fMRI,

Mary Peterson (University of Arizona) uses behavioral methods,
neuropsychology, ERPs, and fMRI to investigate the competitive processes
producing object perception and the interactions between perception and

Jeff Schall* (Vanderbilt University) studies the neural and computational
mechanisms that guide, control and monitor visually-guided gaze behavior.

James Tanaka (University of Victoria) studies the cognitive and neural
processes of face recognition and object expertise.  He is interested in the
perceptual strategies of real world experts, individuals on the autism
spectrum and how a perceptual novice becomes an expert.

Preeti Verghese* (Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute) studies spatial
vision, visual search and attention, as well as eye and hand movements in
normal vision and in individuals with central field loss.

Andrew Watson* (Apple) studies human spatial, temporal and motion
processing, computational modeling of vision, and applications of vision
science to imaging technology. 

Jeremy Wolfe* (Harvard Med & Brigham and Women's Hospital) studies visual
attention and visual search with a special interest in socially important
tasks like cancer screening in radiology.

Note: Members of the VSS Board are indicated with an asterisk*, in case you
have a specific interest in talking to a board member.
