Juno Kim B.Sc., Ph.D.

My research is concerned with understanding how we visually appreciate the physical properties of objects and surfaces in the world around us. Structure in the light that we receive is informative of static properties of surfaces (shape, lightness, glossiness, translucency etc.), and changes in the structure of light is informative about how things in the world (including ourselves) actually move. Below you can find some demos and resources from my research on the perception of surface properties and self-motion perception.
