    Dr Kamila Jozwik

    University Position
    Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellow


    Broadly I'm interested in the following questions: How does the primate brain process visual information? More specifically - how does the primate brain recognise objects? What are the underlying computations of visual processing? I use fMRI, EEG, MEG, behavioural measures and electrophysiology data, together with computational modelling (including deep neural networks) to understand these processes better.
