Xiaoye Wang

Xiaoye (Michael) Wang completed his PhD in Psychology and Cognitive Science at Indiana University, IN, USA. His graduate research primarily focuses on 3D shape perception mediated by various types of visual information, such as stereomotion and monocular structure-from-motion. Many previous research has showed inaccuracies in perceiving the depth dimension of a 3D object. Michael was a part of the BioMotion Lab from June 2019 to September 2021. Michael’s research aimed to identify ways through which one can obtain veridical 3D shapes through large continuous perspective change and build a computational model to account for such phenomena. Michael is interested in event and scene identification using optic flow, and the dynamics of reaches-to-grasp.
