The Bionic Vision Lab is an interdisciplinary group interested in exploring the mysteries of human, animal, and artificial vision. Our passion lies in unraveling the science behind bionic technologies that may one day restore useful vision to people living with incurable blindness.

At the heart of the lab is a diverse team, blending the realms of computer science and engineering with the insightful perspectives of neuroscience and psychology. Research projects range from trying to understand perception in individuals with visual impairments to crafting biophysical models of brain activity and engaging in the transformative world of virtual and augmented reality to create novel visual accessibility tools.

The group collaborates with multiple device manufacturers and bionic eye recipients in an effort to transform their theoretical works into practical solutions that are rigorously tested across different bionic eye technologies.
