I study human vision, particularly 3D vision. My main interest is in how
the visual system could represent the shape of surfaces and the layout
of a scene when the observer is free to move. I trained as a doctor
in Cambridge and studied stereo vision for my DPhil in the Psychology
department at Oxford.
I head an Immersive Virtual Reality Laboratory at the University of Reading
to study spatial perception and motor control
in freely-moving observers.
