Angelica Godinez

Postdoctoral Researcher


Angie is a vision scientist by training and a postdoc researcher at the Humboldt University of Berlin. As part of the Cluster Science of Intelligence, her research is aimed at understanding visual perceptual processing and action in humans in an attempt to improve current models of perceptual processing and contribute insights to AI and robotics. Angie received a BS in Psychology and an MS in Human Factors & Ergonomics from San Jose State University in California, USA. During this time, she worked in the Visuomotor Control Lab at NASA Ames Research Center where she conducted low-level research and modeled eye-movement responses to contrast and luminance. However, she also conducted applied research on the effects of vibration and acceleration on physiological variables such as breathing and heart rate. For her PhD at the University of California, Berkeley, she worked with Dennis M. Levi on the impact, recovery and possible adaptations of poor binocular vision in perception and action (reaching and grasping). While at Berkeley, Angie completed an internship at Nvidia where she applied her knowledge of visual processing to gaze-contingent rendering in an attempt to reduce bandwidth and increase rendering speed in computer graphics.
