Sija is a former undergraduate student with a major in Biology and minor in Psychology. She was working as a research assistant at the Wilcox Lab and did an independent study under the supervision of Dr. Wilcox. The project she was working on examined the effect of orientation of physical stimuli on perceived depth estimates.
Ash is a former Research Coordinator (2019) at The Wilcox Lab. She worked on a collaborative research project between York University and Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC), with an aim to determine if binocular vision (stereopsis) provides an operational advantage for military aircrew. Prior to this she worked with Dr. Laurie Wilcox, Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA), and Qualcomm Inc, to determine whether compression algorithms are visually lossy when applied to challenging (HDR) imagery.
Lesley is a former Post-Doctoral Fellow (2017) at The Wilcox Lab. Her research was a collaboration between York University and Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC). With an aim to evaluate the role of stereopsis and binocular vision to the operational requirements in Air Force personnel. Using psychophysical methods, evaluated candidate tasks where stereopsis may be relevant to task performance. Also investigated altitude estimation in rotary-wing scenarios.
Megan is a former Research Assistant (2017) at The Wilcox Lab. She assisted Professor Wilcox and other members of the lab with the execution of various experiments, research development, and data collection. She also acted as an experienced subject on a number of our projects, and contributed to the lab as an administrative assistant.
Marc is a former Postdoctoral Fellow (2016) at the Wilcox Lab. Marc completed his Diploma in Sport Science at the German Sport University Cologne, Germany, in 2006, and then worked as Research Assistant in the Institute of Physiology and Anatomy in the Motor Control Lab of Dr. Otmar Bock at the same University. In 2008, he began his Ph.D. studies in Human Movement Science in the same lab under the supervision of Dr. Otmar Bock. After graduating in 2013 and completing his first postdoctoral year, he joined Dr. Lauren E. Sergio’s Cognitive-Motor Neuroscience Lab at York University, Toronto, Canada, as a postdoctoral fellow in 2014. In 2016, he additionally joined Dr. Laurie M. Wilcox’s Visual Perception and Psychophysics Lab as a postdoctoral fellow. He is starting in January 2017 his position as Assistant Professor in the School of Kinesiology, College of Human Sciences and Education, at the Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, USA.
Michael obtained his M.Sc. at The Wilcox Lab (2016). In collaboration with Christie digital he investigated how modern high frame-rate (HFR) technology impacts the quantitative evaluations of 3D film. Using psychophysical methods they assessed how different frame rates and associated camera parameters (shutter angle and camera motion) impact viewers' ability to discriminate features in the footage. He also assessed the impact Gestalt grouping principles on perception of 3D scenes based solely on stereopsis (a binocular depth cue). Using psychophysical methods he evaluated the impact of perceptual motion based grouping on the ability of humans to perform a depth estimation task.
Postdoctoral Fellow (2016)
Huayun worked in the lab while an exchange Ph.D. Student (2016). She is very interested in stereopsis. Her current research is on monocular occlusion (areas visible only to one eye during binocular viewing). Her research focuses understanding which depth origins of monocular areas can induce the perception of depth in the absence of conventional disparity such as Panum's limiting case (derived from double fusion or other cues).
Postdoctoral Fellow (2013)
Inna defended her doctoral dissertation (2013) in the Centre for Vision Research at York University. She uses psychophysical experiments and computational modeling to study visual perception, in particular depth perception and stereopsis. She is now pursuing a postdoctoral fellowship at the Eye Movement and Vision Neuroscience Laboratory at the Hospital for Sick Children (affiliated with the University of Toronto).
Karim is a former Computer Science Post Doctoral Fellow (2011) at the Centre for Vision Research at York University. He was working on the 3DFLIC projectwhich involved different partners both from university and industry and had, as an objective, to build the capacity of the S3D production clusters in the Greater Toronto Area. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Tours (France), where he participated in the design of a system called “VirtualSkinLAB” which allowed the company to obtain a sophisticated tool for the stereo 3D human skin modeling, visualization and interaction.
Postdoctoral Fellow (2009)
