About

Overview

Joshua is an experimental psychologist specialising in visual psychophysics who joined City University in 2000. He previously worked at University College London, NASA/Ames Research Centre, Syracuse University, and New York University.

Joshua studied psychology at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. The title of his PhD (from New York University) was "2nd-order processes in the human perception of motion and texture." After working at Syracuse University, NASA/Ames Research Centre, and University College London, he moved to City, where his job titles gradually progressed from Research Fellow to Professor. His main area of work is visual psychophysics, with particular interests in detection, discrimination, appearance, memory, and attention.
