Avi Aizenman, Vision Science PhD

I am a Humboldt Research Fellow in Germany, currently working in the lab of Professor Karl Gegenfurtner at The University of Giessen. My research includes projects relating to the eye and head movements coordinated in virtual reality, as well as color categorization in virtual environments. Previously, I was a graduate student in the Vision Science PhD program at the University of California, Berkeley working in the lab of Professor Dennis Levi. My research there included projects relating to eye movements and perception. These projects included understanding how abnormal eye movements influence perceptual stability and attention in clinical populations (such as amblyopia), as well as eye tracking in virtual reality. Previously, I worked as a research assistant in Dr. Jeremy Wolfe's Visual Attention Lab at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. During my time at the Visual Attention Lab I worked on projects investigating radiological search, and what search strategies radiologists use. I was also involved in projects related to Hybrid Search, which is the combination (or hybrid) of visual search and memory search. I completed my Bachelor’s degree at Brandeis University where I worked with Dr. Robert Sekuler on projects exploring audiovisual integration and the role of musicianship.
