Matthew X. Lowe, PhD.
AboutMatthew X. Lowe is currently a postdoctoral associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) under the supervision of Aude Oliva. Matthew obtained his PhD from the University of Toronto under the supervision of Jonathan S. Cant and Susanne Ferber, and his bachelor's degree from the University of Cape Town. Broadly, he is interested in the neural mechanisms underlying visual perception, and more specifically, the spatial and temporal dynamics underlying the processing of complex visual scenes within the ventral visual cortex.
Outside of the lab, Matthew seeks adventure in the great outdoors. He has trekked through the Arctic Circle and climbed the highest mountains in South America, Europe, Africa, and his home country, South Africa.
