General Area of Research

Visual perception as a science, motion pictures as its technology

Current Research

I study the topic of visual perception and the relevant underlying processes as a unified field of science, with a research emphasis on moving pictures (in all forms, including entertainment, head-mounted displays, animations, etc.). Pictures comprise one of our most important technologies, increasingly outsourced to computers-as-film-makers; in particular, moving pictures are also a largely unmined source of information about the human cognitive and motivational processes they depend on.
