Elizabeth Davis


  • SIGGRAPH 1991

    Elizabeth Davis received her Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from Columbia University in 1979, where she was a student of Norma Graham. Her dissertation studied uncertainty effects in the detection of visual patterns. For the next two years she was a postdoctoral fellow at New York University, supported by a National Research Services Award from N.LH. At N.Y.U. she studied sensory physiology and did single-cell recording in the striate cortex and superior colliculus of cat. Beth was a Research Assistant Professor, then and Associate Professor at the State University of New York, College of Optometry. At SUNY her research was supported by grants from the National Eye Institute of NIH. This research consisted of theoretical and empirical studies of processing spatio-temporal information by the visual system. In addition to basic research interests, at SUNY Beth developed applied, clinical research interests — doing quantitative studies of presurgical evaluation of cataract patients. In the fall of 1990 she moved to Georgia Tech where she is an Associate Professor in the School of Psychology. At Tech she is able to combine her interests in visual psychophysics and computer graphics — in 1987 she had obtained an M.S. degree in computer science from the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Columbia University.
