Beau Lotto

Beau Lotto is a
professor of neuroscience, previously at University College London and
now at
the University of London, and a Visiting Scholar at New York University.
His
work focuses on the biological, computational and psychological
mechanisms of perception. He has conducted and presented research on
human and bumblebee perception and behaviour for more than

understanding
of human nature, advance personal and social well-being through research
that
places the public at the centre of the process of discovery, and create
unique
programmes of engagement that span the boundaries between people,
disciplines and
institutions. Originally from Seattle, with degrees from UC Berkeley and
Edinburgh Medical School, he now lives in Oxford and New York.
