If you are reading this page it means that you might be interested in joining the Vision & Image Understanding laboratory either as a graduate student, a post-doc or a visiting scholar. A few words about this. We are a productive/interdisciplinary lab (with psychologists, neuroscientists, engineers, mathematicians and physicists as members) interested in important questions in cognition and perception. The lab has a particular emphasis on computational approaches to behavior and its relation to neural physiological measures. We are interested in creating computational models to understand how the brain works and also to optimize how humans perform perceptual tasks.
Human vs. Deep Neural Networks:
Foveal and peripheral processing during search:
Times of India
Visual search and the brain
Scene context and the brain:
Optimal eye movements during face recongition
Individual differences in eye movements to faces
