I had my Bachelors degree in Mathematics and Masters degree in Cognitive Science, both in Middle East Technical University, Turkey. Afterwards, I worked with Drs Andrew Schofield and Andrew Welchman in the University of Birmingham on shape from shading and binocular disparity. I used psychophysics and fMRI techniques to evaluate the 3D shape estimation from shading and disparity, and the integration of these two cues. Within the PRISM project, I will be working on the cues which signal surface material quality, and the underlying neural processes during material perception. Specifically, I will be looking at the role of different textures (e.g. specular, lambertian, etc.) and object motion on the perception of surface shape.
