Professor Ute Leonards


After a degree in biology (Dipl. Biol.) at the University of Mainz, Germany (1985-1991), I worked in research at the Max-Planck-Institute for Brain Research in Frankfurt, Germany (1991-1997). I completed a PhD (Dr.rer.nat.) on the interaction of temporal and textural cues in visual perceptual grouping at the University of Mainz in 1994, followed by two post-doctoral periods at the College-de-France in Paris, France (1997-1998), and at the Katholieke Universiteit in Leuven, Belgium (1998-1999), studying the neuronal basis of visual attention and of oculomotor functions with functional magnetic resonance imaging. Between 1999 and 2003, I held a tenured research position at the Neuroimaging Unit within the Department of Psychiatry, University Hospitals of Geneva, Switzerland. In April 2003, I joined the School of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol.
