Overview

OverviewText1

  • I am fascinated by a wide range of research topics. Recent research projects include: social norm research (both applied and theoretical), behavioural change research, perceptual learning and a range of vision-related projects.

    For an easy-to-read example of the sort of perceptual learning work I am particularly interested in doing, please look at this paper:

Supervision Statement

  • I am fascinated by a wide range of research topics. So if you have a really good idea that is somehow connected to vision, social norms, behavioral change, perceptual learning, learning in general or anything that is related to any of my previous research papers, feel free to pitch it to me.

    In the near future, I am expecting to focus more on perceptual learning and behavioural change and would very much like to work with students on these sorts of topics. I encourage you to contact me to discuss possible projects along these lines if you are potentially interested in doing a PhD with me.
