Brief Profile

My academic training is in psychological science (a BA degree from the University of Sheffield; PhD from the University of Reading; Fellow of the Higher Education Academy). After finishing my PhD, my research career began with post-doctoral research positions at the University of Reading, York University (Canada), and University College London. I held an academic post as Professor of Experimental Psychology at the University of Sussex until 2011, when I moved to the University of Lincoln as Professor of Vision Science.

My research interests in human vision include movement perception, visual after-effects and the perception of visual art. Details of all my publications can be found in the Publications section of the website.

Much of my research has been funded by major UK science funding bodies (listed in the Research section). I am currently on the editorial boards of two international journals (Proceedings of the Royal Society Series B, and Perception/iPerception), and am a member of the Peer Review College of the Economic and Social Science Research Council. I am a member of the Experimental Psychology Society and the Applied Vision Association.
