About Robert Lee

My first degree was in Natural Sciences, which gave me a broad sampling of scientific disciplines. During this time I developed a fascination with human vision and this determined my following research career. I completed a PhD on the temporal properties of processing in the colour vision system. Before coming to Lincoln I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford, again working on colour vision and how we maintain stable perceptions in changing lighting conditions. Iā€™m now a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of Psychology, working on various aspects of colour vision, and visual perception in general.
