Alex Holcombe studies the temporal limits on human perception and attention. He has long been frustrated by the perverse nature of the system for publishing his, and everyone else's, results. In an effort to change the system, he contributes to initiatives to increase open access to research publications and results and to reduce publication bias. He is an Associate Professor at the School of Psychology of the University of Sydney, and co-director of the University's Centre For Time.

In this photo, I am wearing really dark sunglasses! Alex Holcombe I was viewing a solar eclipse through goggles fitted in the lab with filters that cut the incoming light by a factor of 10,000. These filters were used in our positive afterimages project.
