Mr Sam Matchette


The focus thus far is to investigate dynamic environmental features, particularly dramatic changes in illumination, and how these influence both motion perception and employed camouflage strategies. Here, the question of how environmental features and texture could combine to aid 'motion camuflage' arises, including a bridge to the field of dazzle camouflage. A life-long fascination in military endeavours too supplements this interest, both regarding the naval origins of dazzle camouflage and its posible applications in modern conflicts.


The University of Bristol has served as home for both my undergraduate and current postgraduate ventures. I graduated in the summer of 2015 with first-class honours in Zoology (BSc) and am now undertaking a PhD (CASE Studentship) under supervision from Dr. Nick Scott-Samuel and Prof. Innes Cuthill. The studentship is joint-funded by EPSRC and Qientiq.
