Professor Marina Bloj

I am the University of Bradford lead for the Wolfson Centre for Applied Health Research and Professor of Visual Perception.

I am interested in understanding how we see things: how do our eyes and brain work together to give us the vision of the world around us? Most of us do this effortlessly almost from birth and yet no machine can see as we do. The elegant and not yet well understood workings of our visual system hide very complicated computational problems that I investigate in my lab. I make use of my background in physics to help me understand how light interacts with objects and with our eyes.
