Heiko Schütt CV

Heiko Schütt startet his scientific career in Gießen, where he studied psychology. In Gießen he did his bachelor thesis with Roland W. Fleming and worked with the lab of Karl Gegenfurtner. This started his interest in vision research, which he has pursued until today with his lab rotations in the lab(s) of Laura Busse and Steffen Katzner as well with his current stay in the Wichmann-Lab. As he studied mathematics as well as psychology it came naturally to be interested in quantitative models, which is why he is working on the development and evaluation of quantitative models and deeper data analysis.

For his master thesis he developed a toolbox for Bayesian Statistics on psychometric functions, which is available at https://github.com/wichmann-lab/psignifit.

Now he works on ways to apply early vision models to natural scenes and combining them with dynamic eyemovement models developed by the group of Ralf Engbert in Potsdam with whom he closely colaborates on this.
