I work on development and empirical testing 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. Please see the CNS Vision Lab and the Neuromorphics Laboratory for more about my research.
