Biography

My work focuses on the mechanisms underlying sensory perception in humans. I joined the School of Psychology at the University of Nottingham as a post-doctoral research fellow in October 2016. Prior to this, I completed a PhD at the University of York using fMRI to investigate the neural representation of natural scenes.

Research Summary

I am currently working with Dr. Ben Webb and Dr. Neil Roach, investigating the role of sensory adaptation in the multi-sensory integration of vision with other modalities. In particular, my research… read more

Current Research

I am currently working with Dr. Ben Webb and Dr. Neil Roach, investigating the role of sensory adaptation in the multi-sensory integration of vision with other modalities. In particular, my research focuses on using altered reality displays to manipulate sensory perception over extended periods, and testing the effects of such manipulations upon our perceptual systems.

Past Research

Between 2011 and 2016, I completed a PhD at the University of York, using fMRI in conjunction with multi-variate pattern analyses to investigate the role of low-level visual features in the neural representation of natural scenes. During this period, I also completed a short research assistant position on a related project investigating the influence of visual properties on the neural representation of object categories.
