I am a Lecturer in Psychology in the School of Health Sciences. My research interests include:
Visual attention: How observers allocate their attention effectively and what factors influence selection.
Top-down control of attention: my research explores potential limits in the control of attention whereby the demands of a preceding task influence the allocation of attention in a current task.
Driving psychology: This includes visual search in the driving task and the influence of driving experience on the allocation and control of attention.
The influence of emotion on visual attention.
Thesis Title: The persistence of attentional set and its implications for top-down control
