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).
