I got my Bachelor's degree in Psychology of Personality and Interpersonal Relationships at Padua University (Padua, Italy). Right before getting my Master's degree in Clinical Psychology (and starting a career as a clinical psychologist), I fell in love with everything that is about Perception and Visual Neuroscience. Since then, this is what I do and I love.
After my master thesis on motion priming under the supervision of Prof. Gianluca Campana, I joined Prof. Michael Herzog's Psychophysics laboratory at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Lausanne, Switzerland) for a PhD in Neuroscience (2009-2014). My PhD focused on how our visual system organizes the cluttered environment around us in a coherent manner (go here for more info about my work on visual organization).
At the end of my PhD, I was awarded of the Early Postdoc.Mobility fellowship by the Swiss National Science Foundation, for an 18 months postdoc in Prof. David Whitney's laboratory of Perception and Action at UC Berkeley (California, USA). Here, I have become interested in how our visual system stabilizes our visual interpretations of the world, turning discontinuous and chaotic retinal images into coherent visual percepts (go here for more info about my work on visual stabilization).
As of August 2019, I am a Lecturer (~Assistant Professor) in Psychology at the University of Aberdeen (UK). More about my research at www.mauromanassi.com
