Office hours: 11.30-12.30 Tue; 11.30-12.30 Fri.
I try to be available in my office at these times.
I studied Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of Manchester, before completing a PhD on Unilateral Neglect, at Glasgow Caledonian University. I was then lucky enough to join Prof. David Milner's research group at the University of St. Andrews, working in particular with individuals with neuropsychological symptoms such as Visual Agnosia, Optic Ataxia, Unilateral Neglect and Extinction. From 2000-2005 I held the Addison Wheeler Fellowship at the University of Durham, during which time I spent 18 months at the University of Queensland. I joined Psychology at the University of Edinburgh in 2005, and established the Visuomotor Laboratory.
At the moment, I teach introductory perception at pre-honours level, and a new, higher-level Perception, Action, Cognition course at honours level.
I also lecture postgraduate students about academic writing and single-case research design, and supervise research dissertations at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
I try to keep regular open office hours 11.30-12.30 on Mondays and on Fridays; or you can email me any time for a meeting to discuss course material, or anything else.
Open to PhD supervision enquiries?
