My research interest is in reconstructing subjective perceptual experience. Despite sharing the same physical reality, how people experience the world seems to differ at the level of basic sensory perception. This can be revealed by simple visual illusions, where the strength of a visual illusion will vary depending on its perceiver.
Using population receptive field (pRF) modelling method, our first step will be to reconstruct subjective percepts of object size across individuals using simple size illusions (e.g. Ponzo illusion). We will then attempt to reconstruct more complicated visual phenomenon such as peripheral crowding, where outside of our central foveal vision, it becomes more difficult to report what we see.
