Center for Perceptual Systems

R. Calen Walshe

Calen Walshe began a postdoctoral fellowship in Bill Geisler's lab in August, 2015. He completed his PhD at The University of Edinburgh, where he studied saccade programming and eye-movement control within natural environments. His research utilized a combination of psychophysics and computational modelling. At the Center for Perceptual Systems, Calen will extend his research to the study of how properties of human sensory processing - in particular, detectability across the visual field - contributes to the selection of eye-movement target locations in search and other natural tasks.
