Introduction

Zeynep studied Psychology and Neuroscience at Bilkent University. After a Master thesis on audio-visual associations and motion perception, she joined the PhD program in Psychology at the University of Bern, where she studied appearance in peripheral vision in Prof. Bilge Sayim’s Lab. Her PhD project focused on a novel effect called “redundancy masking”, which is the substantial compression of redundant information in peripheral vision. She is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in the SCALab at the University of Lille working with Prof. Bilge Sayim and in collaboration with Prof. Wolf Harmening on a project about redundancy masking and adaptive optics.
