I am an Assistant Professor at the Icelandic Vision Lab at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik.
I have recently been a postdoctoral researcher at the SCALab at the University of Lille in France and a postdoctoral researcher at the Icelandic Vision Lab collaborating with Prof. Árni Kristjánsson and Dr. Andrey Chetverikov (Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behavior).
I am a vision scientist and my research focusses on human visual perception using behavioural methods and computational modelling. In particular, I am interested in the mechanisms used to represent information in visual memory. For that, I investigate probabilistic representations of visual ensembles, visual priming and perceptual biases such as serial dependence.
My PhD thesis examined the role of the context on human gloss perception using psychophysical scaling methods. My thesis was supervised by Dr. Pascal Mamassian at the Laboratoire des systèmes perceptifs at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, France.
