Short Bio

I studied psychology at the University of Helsinki in 1999-2004 and wrote my master's thesis on the interaction between chromatic and luminance mechanisms. I concentrated on experimental psychology, biological psychology and visual perception throughout my studies. My PhD work concentrates on colour constancy in simulated and natural environments. One of my projects deals with the colour appearance of natural objects and the enhancing effect memory colours (typical colours of objects) have on colour constancy in a project funded by the German Research Council (DFG Ge 879/5).
