I am an Assistant Professor in the McGill University Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences, and a Junior Scientist in the Brain Repair and Integrative Neuroscience program of the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre. I have a laboratory at the Montreal General Hospital. For more information about me and my career please see my biographical sketch. A list of my publications can be found on my Google Scholar page. For more about my lab, please see the relevant page. I will be maintaining a resource of information there regarding the equipment and software tools we use.

I am a supervisor in McGill’s Integrated Program in Neuroscience. You can find me in the IPN supervisor database here. I am also a supervisor for the Quantitative Life Sciences program. You can find my supervisor page here. I have a page for prospective graduate or undergraduate project students.

Welcome Annabel Fan

I am very happy to have had Annabel Fan join the Baldwin Vision Lab as a PhD student as of Fall 2021.

I have a deep appreciation for visual perception and the neural mechanisms underlying our conscious experiences. This interest has led me to pursue doctoral studies at McGill University where I am investigating how visual information processing changes as we get older. My research aims to help older adults drive more safely and uses behavioural methods (including having older adults use driving simulators!). I am also a firm believer in knowledge mobilisation and have experience in translating research into web and mobile applications. I hope to combine my training in neuroscience and my passion for video games and virtual reality to improve human health. Outside of work, I enjoy various artistic hobbies (illustration, painting, sewing), and am working my way through a very long book list (currently on “Atlas of AI” by Kate Crawford).

Welcome Raffles Zhu

I am excited to announce that Raffles Zhu joined the Baldwin Vision Lab as a graduate student as of Fall 2021. Raffles will be co-supervised by the MVR director Robert Hess.

My name is Raffles Xingqi Zhu and I am a first-year Masters student in the Integrated Program in Neuroscience (IPN). Prior to joining Dr. Baldwin’s lab, I completed a bachelor of science in physics with a concentration in biophysics at McGill. In my undergraduate years, I was fortunate to have worked on various research projects at the interface of biological and physical sciences, ranging from constructing phylogenetic trees to studying diffusion of nanoparticles. After I stumbled upon a neuroscience course, I grew interested in the field and decided I want to pursue graduate studies in visual neurosciences. My masters project will have a basic component involving the study of blur perception and a clinical component that aims to unravel the basis of visual deficits experienced by patients with amblyopia. In my free time, I enjoy doing photography and hiking outdoors.

Welcome Jeong Ung Song

I am very pleased to welcome Jeong Ung Song who joined the Baldwin Vision Lab as a graduate student in Fall 2021.

Hello, my name is Jeong Ung Song and I am a graduate student pursuing thesis-based Master’s Degree in Neuroscience at McGill University. I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Alberta, and worked as a lab manager for a computational neuroscience lab. Currently, I am using psychophysics method to study a rare visual disorder called visual snow, which causes people to see numerous particles in their vision. We believe that studying visual snow will get us closer to understanding the process in our visual system which modulates internal visual noise. In my spare time, I direct theatre and recently put on a production called CHANZO at the Edmonton Fringe Festival.

New Website Launched

It seems appropriate for my first news entry to be the launch of this website. It is created using Hugo based on the Anatole theme. I am looking forward to developing this site further over the next few months.
