Peter Bex, Ph.D.



Senior Scientist, Schepens Eye Research Institute

Associate Professor, Department of Ophthalmology, Harvard Medical School





A recent addition to the Schepens faculty, Peter Bex received his PhD in Vision Science from Cardiff University, UK, in 1994. His thesis project was an applied study of perceptual failures experienced by pilots reading dynamic information on computer-generated cockpit displays. This was followed by post-doctoral research positions at McGill University in Montreal and at the University of Rochester, NY. Peter studied optics, used laser systems to present images directly on the retina, and began to examine visual function in the natural environment. To read more about Dr. Bex, please click here.
