For this project, I am using an eye tracking device to study how people orient their gaze in order to acquire visual information during a navigation task. This task will be performed in both an indoor and outdoor environmemt. Aging alter the perception of the visual cues used to navigate. This study can then helps us examining how this alteration may affect the spatial learning and goal-oriented behaviour in older adults.
I have a master’s degree in ‘Health engineering: vision science’ from the University of Paris-Sud (France). During my studies, I was trained in eye refraction, contact lens adaptation, ocular screening and the functions of the visual system. I did my master’s internship in the Aging in Vision and Action group, where I studied the effect of chromaticity on the contrast sensitivity function. After that, I worked for Essilor International in their Vision Sciences R&D department for 8 months. During that time I worked on the simulation of chromatic filter and on the concept of color contrast.
