Dr. Oruc completed her PhD in New York University under the supervision of Dr Michael Landy and Dr Larry Maloney. During her time at NYU she studied psychophysics of mid-to-high level vision including texture and depth perception. Dr Oruc continued her training as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania with Dr. Benjamin Backus working on mechanisms of stereo vision. Following her move to Vancouver, Dr Oruc held three consecutive positions at the University of British Columbia as a postdoctoral researcher and a research associate in the laboratories of Dr Alan Kingstone and Dr Jason Barton, where she expanded her research repertoire with studies using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG). In 2011 she joined the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences as an assistant professor. Dr Oruc brings a unique skill set to the department combining her training in computer science (BSc, MSc) with visual psychophysics and neuroimaging. She has focused these skills on deciphering the brain mechanisms behind higher-level vision and bridging the gap between basic science and clinical applications.
