Research Interests

My research in the Vision Lab in CompNet and Cognitive and Neural Systems, connected with CELEST includes:


- Motion integration by multiscale sampling: a solution to the aperture problem


- Figure-ground segregation by multiscale sampling: this and the above rely on fast brain inter-areal connections
