My teaching interests include visual psychophysics, visual optics, geometrical optics, environmental optics, clinical electrophysiology of vision.
I graduated in Physics from Sofia University, Bulgaria. I worked at the Institute of Physiology, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, where I completed my PhD thesis on spatial and temporal characteristics of human vision. Since 1998, I have been working at the Department of Vision Sciences, Glasgow Caledonian University. In 2007 I was promoted to Professor of Visual Neuroscience.
