Benjamin Wolfe

Dr. Benjamin Wolfe

Assistant Professor, Psychology (Starting January 2021)
University of Toronto Mississauga

Dr. Wolfe is a co-director of the lab, and his research sits at the intersection of applied and basic vision science. Recently, he has focused on questions of human visual perception in driving, including how drivers understand their environments and how they acquire the information that leads to their situational awareness. Dr. Wolfe also works on questions of readablity and legibility for digitally-presented text, and additionally has interests in peripheral vision, saccade planning, visual attention and scene perception. Dr. Wolfe will be joining the Psychology Department at the University of Toronto Mississauga in January 2021, and was a postdoctoral associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 2015-2020 with Dr. Ruth Rosenholtz. Dr. Wolfe received his PhD in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley in 2015, where he was advised by Dr. David Whitney.
Dr. Wolfe is recruiting graduate students to start in Fall, 2021.

Anna Kosovicheva

Dr. Anna Kosovicheva

Assistant Professor, Psychology (Starting January 2021)
University of Toronto Mississauga

Dr. Kosovicheva is a co-director of the lab, and her research focuses on questions of spatial vision, binocular vision and eye movements. She is particularly interested in questions of visual localization, how we know where things are in the world, and how the visual system determines perceived position under conditions of uncertainty. Dr. Kosovicheva also studies deficits in binocular vision, particularly amblyopia and strabismus, applying psychophysical methods to new assessments. She will be joining the Psychology Department at the University of Toronto Mississauga in January 2021, and was a postdoctoral fellow at Northeastern University from 2015-2020 with Dr. Peter Bex. Dr. Kosovicheva received her PhD in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley in 2015, where she was advised by Dr. David Whitney.
