Personal profile

Key Research Interests


My research centres around visual attention and scene understanding.  I interested in learning how we convert visual sensory information into a semantic concepts like a scene's category and how we then use this information to direct our gaze.  More recently, I have started investigating how children process and understand their visual world differently to adults.

I predominantly use eye-tracking, but also use virtual reality (VR), drawing, and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
