Our lab is in the Psychology Department at the University of Toronto Mississauga. We study visual perception and its application to real-world problems. The lab is run jointly by Dr. Benjamin Wolfe and Dr. Anna Kosovicheva, and takes a use-inspired approach to vision science and cognitive psychology research, looking to the world for problems that can benefit from a vision science approach and that can, in turn, tell us about how visual perception works. Research areas include:See our research page
