Dr Jasmina Stevanov


I was trained as an experimental psychologist and artist at the University of Belgrade and the University of Novi Sad in Serbia. My doctoral (Ritsumeikan University, 2009-2013) and postdoctoral (Kyoto University, 2013-2015) work in Japan focused on incorporating these two disciplines through the psychophysics of illusions and neuroscience of aesthetics; sitting at the cross-section of vision research and studies of art reception. My work approaches this topic from a point of view that any visual phenomenon that promotes selective attention and positive emotional responses can be considered as part of aesthetics.

My current research focuses on using machine learning and eye-tracking techniques to explore individual preferences for visual art.
