Undergraduate teaching

Personal tutees wishing a meeting should send me a note through Euclid. Other students should send an email to rlogie (at) In either case, a meeting can normally be arranged within a day.

In 2017-18 I will be teaching on the following courses:

  • Human memory in First year Psychology,
  • MSc Human Cognition: Science and Application to Society
  • MSc Transferring Knowledge to Society
  • MSc tutorials on Human Working Memory

I am available for supervising final year Psychology projects, MSc projects and PhDs.

Open to PhD supervision enquiries?
