Primary activity: @ Ophthalmic optics: This field of research regards every device that cab be useful to improve human vision. We have studied, for example, progressive addition lenses, contact lenses, filter lenses, sunglasses, lighting.

@ Lighting: E.g.: Relationship between vision and lighting, colour rendering of light sources, influence of light on color perception.

@Optometric test: we can check optometric test from photometric and colorimetric point of view, but also from psychophysical point of view.

@ Ergonomy: e.g. readibility of web pages, readibility in low contrast texts.

Vision research: bistable figures, intermodal matching of vision and audition, attentive tasks.


Main experiences acquired: Research in psychophysics, visual ergonomy, ophthalmic optics, lighting. Project management.
