Julie Skevik


Position: PhD Student


Biography: Julie is working on a project investigating how sensory information from vision and touch are combined to judge the position and shape of object boundaries. We are collaborating externally with Dr. Alan McWilliam (Christie Hospital / University of Manchester) to apply this knowledge to improving tissue delineation in medical imaging data. At Reading Julie is co-supervised by Prof. William Harwin and Dr. David Field.
