Andrew B. Watson is the Senior Vision Scientist at Apple, Inc. in Cupertino, CA, USA. Previously he was Senior Scientist for Vision Research at NASA Ames Research Center in California. He was an undergraduate at Columbia University, received his PhD in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, and did postdoctoral work at the University of Cambridge in England. He is the author of over 100 papers and seven patents on topics in vision science and imaging technology. In 2001, he founded the Journal of Vision ( where he served as Editor-in-Chief. Dr. Watson is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America, of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, and of the Society for Information Display. He is Vice Chair for Vision Science and Human Factors of the International Committee on Display Measurement. In 2007 he received the Otto Schade Award from the Society for Information Display, and in 2008 the Special Recognition Award from the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology. In 2011, he received the Presidential Rank Award from the President of the United States.
