Departments of Neuroscience and Psychology

Robbe Goris’ research seeks to uncover the neural basis of our visual capabilities. He uses behavioral experiments, computational theory, and monkey electrophysiology to study representation and computation in the primate visual system. Current projects in his lab are focused on the neural representation of sensory uncertainty, and on the relation between natural image statistics and cascaded computation in the visual cortex. Robbe received his Ph.D. in 2009 from KU Leuven (advisors: Johan Wagemans and Felix Wichmann), went on to do a post-doc at NYU (advisors: Tony Movshon and Eero Simoncelli), and joined UT Austin as assistant professor in fall 2016.
