Professor of Psychology, University of St Andrews

Julie leads an interdisciplinary team of researchers who study visual perception in humans, and recently has become interested in the visual evolutionary arms race between predator and prey species.

Julie is best known for her work on how we perceive the world in three dimensions, specialising in the perception of depth, shape, layout and what benefits our visual system receives from having two forward-facing eyes. Her lab use human behavioural measures, eye movement recording, and computational techniques to probe the brain mechanisms that underly visual perception.
