"Why do things look as they do?"

(K. Koffka, Principles of Gestalt Psychology, 1935)

My group's main research goal is to understand visual perception. We investigate spatial vision from the level of simple artificial stimuli up to object and scene perception. In our research we combine psychophysical experiments and computational modelling in order to make progress towards a better understanding of human vision. In this spirit we investigate early spatial vision as well as natural scene perception. Further, we attempt to uncover the critical features observers use in complex perceptual tasks in order to address the fundamental problem of "similarity" and its role in human categorization behavior.
