Olga obtained her master’s degree from the Berlin School of Mind and Brain (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) with a study on the role of visual grouping in the allocation of attention. Her research interests include eye movements and visual sensitivity in dynamic real-world scenes, and object-based attention in active vision. At SCIoI she joined the research group of Martin Rolfs to work on the project “Object-level scene descriptions and attention in visual search” (SCIoI Project 01). Olga’s doctoral project, titled “Object-based attention in dynamic visual scene processing ” deals with understanding processes of selective attention in human vision. The insights gained in her research will be used to improve synthetic perceptual algorithms.
