Welcome to my website. I’m Jenny Read, a Professor of Vision Science at the Biosciences Institute at Newcastle University, and a member of Newcastle’s Centre for Behaviour and Evolution. My particular interest is “3D” or stereo depth perception, also known as stereopsis. As sketched out here, I study pretty much all aspects of this ability, ranging from detailed psychophysical measurements of depth perception, to computational models of the underlying neuronal mechanisms, to stereopsis in other species, to clinical disorders of vision, to commercial applications of 3D display technologies.
You can use the tabs above to navigate these pages. You’ll find all my published papers and details of talks given by me and other lab members. There’s also Matlab code relating to many of my publications. You can find videos of me talking about my own work, or vision science in general, on my YouTube channel. Here are links to my ORCID and Google Scholar profiles.
A lot of my research uses volunteers who participate in my experiments probing human vision. If you have volunteered in one of my experiments, thank you so much! We couldn’t do it without you. I have a page specially for people who have participated in my research, where I explain what we have learnt with your help.
Please get in touch if you want to know more.
