Welcome to the Glennerster lab
We study human vision, particularly 3D vision. Our main interest is in how the visual system could represent the shape of surfaces and the layout of a scene when the observer is free to move. See 2 minute youtube video or 4.5hrs of lectures or a recent keynote talk and UCB seminar
Another paper by Alex and Andrew on navigation in mazes with wormholes is out on bioRxiv.
- Alex and Andrew's reinforcement learning paper with Oxford is now published in Vision Research.
Alex and Andrew's paper on representations for navigation in reinforcement learning is accepted in Vision Research. Out on arXiv.
Welcome to Will Hinton who joins the lab on a UROP placement. Let's hope the lab opens before too long!

Rosetta Comet in Virtual Reality: You can now view a 3D visualisation of the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko here. We have rendered a 3D model of the comet produced by the Rosetta mission/European Space Agency in immersive virtual reality.
Andrew publishes a book review Understanding Vision.
Andrew, Peter, Mark and Jenny attend the London Virtual Reality Seminar at UCL.
PhD student Mark Adams joins our team to investigate Vision and Touch. Welcome, Mark!
Peter is filmed for a CBBC program called "Technobabble". The focus of the program was the use of virtual reality, the aim being to encourage more children to get interested in science and technology. This is a current aim of the UK government. For information about the program, including video, click here.
Peter and Andrew publish a paper about calibration of visual cues. Further discussion of the results can be found here.
Andrew and Jenny travel to Florida to present exciting research results at VSS 2014. Click here for Andrew's poster, and here for Jenny's poster.
The Glennerster Lab has been awarded an EPSRC-funded DTG Studentship. A new PhD student will join our lab in October 2014 to work in collaboration with Dr. Nick Holmes and Prof. William Harwin.
