Prof. Dr. Marianne Maertens
Principal Investigator. My research bridges the areas of computer science and psychology. My key competencies are in experimental research methods and the study of human vision.
Dr. Guillermo Aguilar
Post-doc. I study visual perception in humans. I'm particularly interested in our perception of lightness, depth and transparency. I'm also interested in the evaluation and development of psychophysical methods that can reliably measure appearance.
Dr. Joris Vincent
Post-doc. I study visual perception in humans. I'm particularly interested in the perceptual representation of chromatic information in natural scenes. Ideally, I am looking to develop an (image computable) model for transforming chromaticity information to a representation that more accurately reflects human color perception.
Ph.D. student. I study visual processing in humans. In particular, I am interested in how we perceive the three-dimensional nature of our surrounds, and how this information could be used to improve computer vision models.
Bachelor Student. In my Bachelor thesis, I study surface segmentation through adaptation.
Bachelor Student. In my Bachelor thesis, I study perception of transparency and contrast in variegated checkerboards with transparent media of low luminance values.
Bachelor Student. In my Bachelor thesis, I study if the human visual system is more sensitive to edges or luminance differences and if we do get similar results from experiments on these two stimuli.
Tom Ravid Hausmann
Bachelor Student. I'm working on expanding and refactoring the multyscale package for greater transparency in brightness perception modelling.
Bachelor Student. In my Bachelor thesis, I will focus on the relationship between discrimination and scaling methods in the domain of contrast perception.
Bachelor Student. In my Bachelor thesis, I study the effect of background contrast on perceived contrast and perceived transparency.
Eduardo Luiz Rhein
Bachelor student. In my Bachelor thesis, I study implementing and analyzing content-adaptive subsampling for image compression.
Bachelor student. In my Bachelor thesis, I study visual perception of depth through different illuminations of 3d generated scenes on the computer screen.
Bachelor Student. In my Bachelor thesis, I want to investigate the influence of noise on human edge perception in natural images.
Bachelor Student. In my Bachelor thesis, I study replicability and reproducibility: Translating and evaluating a camouflage detection algorithm.
