I am the Professor for Perception at the Institute of Psychology and Centre for Cognitive Science, TU Darmstadt. My interests mostly focus on visual perception in humans and machines, but also include machine learning and cognitive modelling and applications of visual perception research (image quality, driving).

I finished my PhD in Psychology in 2010 in Derek Arnold's lab at the University of Queensland, Australia, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship with Peter Bex in Boston, before moving to Germany in 2013 to work with Felix Wichmann and Matthias Bethge. I spent two years working as a scientist at Amazon research before joining the TU Darmstadt as a professor in 2021.
