Dr Laszlo Talas

Biography

I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2011 with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology & Zoology. I did my final year dissertation on gloss perception in the large earth bumblebee (Bombus terrestris). I have decided to stay in Bristol to do a PhD; my thesis investigated the cultural evolution of camouflage uniform patterns and was supervised by Prof. Innes Cuthill (School of Biological Sciences), Prof. David Bull (Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering) and Dr Gavin Thomas (Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield). I have been previously working as a Research Associate on the EPSRC-funded "Camouflage Machine" project, which combined machine learning, visual psychophysics and computer graphics to either optimise camouflage or maximise visibility for a range environments.
