Research

I am primarily interested in the use of disruptive patterning to distort the shape of organisms in the natural world. More specifically, my work focuses on how to optimise the spatial properties of this type of camouflage, so as to alter predator perception of prey. However, the application of findings to military situations is also of interest to me.

Biography

In 2015, I graduated from the University of Bristol with a BSc in Experimental Psychology. My interest in camouflage sprung from my third year research project, which concerned the confusion effect, and factors which interact with it (such as motion dazzle), in a 3D setting. Subsequently, I have begun an MSc by Research, supervised by Dr. Nick Scott-Samuel and Prof. Innes Cuthill.
