Users are often faced with a large quantity of information, and the designer’s goal is to present that information in such a way that the user can make rapid and accurate decisions as part of their task.  Critical to doing this is to understand the rapid, effortless, often veridical processing capabilities of the human visual system.  Grounding human vision research in applications provides us with a rich source of interesting research questions, and gives a useful perspective on our work in human perception.

More recently, we have been developing a simple and intuitive model of a range of perceptual organization phenomenon.  This model can correctly predict percepts of text, graphs, maps, and so on.
