Katja Doerschner received her Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from New York University in 2006. Her dissertation dealt with modeling mechanisms of color constancy by taking into account the spatial complexity in 3D scenes. Before joining Bilkent University she trained at the University of Minnesota as a postdoctoral researcher, conducting neuroimaging and behavioral research on mechanisms of visual surface material perception.

She currently holds an Assistant Professor position at the Department Of Psychology and is a scientist at the National Magnetic Resonance Research Center (UMRAM). Her research interests include imaging genomics, haptics, and biological and computer vision. Dr. Doerschner co-directs the biological and computational vision lab as well as the brain research group at Bilkent.

Dr. Doerschner is a Marie Curie Fellow and collaborates locally in research projects focused on functional neuroimaging supported by the Turkish National Science Foundation. Dr. Doerschner's international collaborations include the University of Minnesota (USA), New York University (USA), Technical University Delft (Netherrlands), Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics (Germany), and Justus Liebig University Giessen (Germany).
