Envision Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Alumni)

Dr. Rezaul Karim was the second Research Fellow with the Envision Research Institute, working under the mentorship of Dr. Lora Likova, a Scientist with the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute in San Francisco, California (an Affiliated Scientist with the Envision Research Institute). He earned a Bachelor of Science in Honours (Psychology/Statistics and Economics) as well as a Master of Science in Psychology (Educational and Social) from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh.  He received his Doctorate of Philosophy in Psychology (Experimental) from Kanazawa University, Japan. His research broadly focuses on the visual perception, tactile perception, and cognition in the blind, visually impaired and sighted populations. During his time at ERI and SKERI, he investigated tactile aesthetics, neuroaesthetics, and tactile memory in these populations by employing the novel behavioral measures (tactile rating scale) in combination with cutting-edge neuroimaging techniques (fMRI).
