Anna has just finished her PhD (funded by the BBSRC and Dstl) studying visual motion perception and how this is affected by camouflage patterns. She’s also generally interested in the psychology, neuroscience and ecology of vision. She was based at the University of Cambridge (supervised by Dr David Tolhurst) and was co-supervised by Dr Martin Stevens at the University of Exeter. She has recently taken up a post at University College London.
