Researchers' Night 2016

Researchers' Night 2016

The Colourlab was present at Researchers' Night at Vitensenteret Innlandet on Friday the 23th of September. Associate professor Peter Nussbaum and PhD student Anne Kristin Kvitle demonstrated colour deficiency tests and different visual phenomena. Also, the attendees were able to try the Variantor dichromatic spectacles, giving an impression of how colour vision deficiency affects the way we perceive colours. Both kids and parents were able to explore science through fun learning.

Jean-Baptiste Thomas starts as Post-doctoral researcher at the Colourlab in the Frinatek Toppforsk funded MUVApp project

Jean-Baptiste Thomas has joined the MUVApp project team as a post-doctoral researcher. He will work on measuring and understanding the appearance of translucent 3D objects. Jean-Baptiste Thomas received his Bachelor in Applied Physics in 2004 and his Master in Optics, Image and Vision in 2006, both from the Université Jean Monnet in France. He received his PhD from the Université de Bourgogne in 2009. After a stay as a researcher at the Gjøvik University College and then at the C2RMF (Centre de Recherche et de Restauration des Musées de France), he is now Maître de Conférences (Associate Professor) at the University of Bourgogne. During the academic year 2015-16 he was transferred to the CNRS and 50% guest researcher at EPFL. His research focuses on color science and on color and multi-spectral imaging. He has obtained a sabbatic leaves from Université de Bourgogne to join the NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology) as a post-doctoral researcher in the MUVApp project.
