Our lab is led by Professor Frank Pollick, who is an expert in human vision and relating computational models to human performance at visual and cognitive tasks. Over his career he has worked extensively with mathematicians and computer scientists in successful collaborations. His work on forensic aspects of visual performance began around ten years ago when he received a grant from the Ministry of Defence to examine the effects of human expertise at judging harmful intent in experienced CCTV operators.
