My office hours (Semester 1, from Sept 2019) are 9am-11am Thursdays. Feel free to drop in or email me to arrange to meet at other times.
I am a member of the Differential and Health Psychology group and a founder member of the Koestler Parapsychology Unit (KPU), which celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2015. Between October 2010 and December 2014 I held the prestigious Perrott-Warrick Senior Researcher Fellowship. This enabled me to pursue a programme of research investigating the psychology of precognitive dream experiences, and to write Parapsychology: A Beginner's Guide, published in 2016. In August 2016 I was honoured to take up the position of Koestler Chair of Parapsychology.
I am Year 2 Course Organiser.
I also teach a Y4 option course in Parapsychology, as part of the Undergraduate Honours Psychology degree programme. I also run an online parapsychology course, which allows the general public to explore parapsychological topics.
Open to PhD supervision enquiries?
Areas of interest for supervision
I am interested in supervising Doctoral research that contributes to our understanding of methodological issues in parapsychology (e.g., replication, study registration).
