Personal profile

Personal profile

My research focuses on visual perception and how our brains understand the visual world around us. I am interested in several different areas including:

  • How camouflage undermines the visual system.
  • How colour and luminance cues are combined.
  • The influence of colour on visual discomfort.
  • Whether playing video-games can make us better at other visual tasks.
  • How special effects in media interact with the visual system.

In addition to these areas I have also done work on the perception of human locomotion and symmetry.

I am a peer-reviewer for Scientific Reports, Journal of Vision, Vision Research and Symmetry and an Editorial Board Member for Scientific Reports.


I teach on and I am module lead for:

PSY301 - Human Variability: Psychobiology & Behaviour

PSY406 - Brain Investigations

I also teach into PSY101 - Intro to Psychology
