About me

I have investigated the perception and performance of divers under water, particularly their adaptation to the optical distortions caused by the facemask. I have also studied weight and mass perception in high and low gravity environments, such as the human centrifuge, parabolic flight (see photo above) and Spacelab.

I am currently interested in the history of perception, especially the Moon Illusion, and in the perception of the outdoor environment.

I am also working on Gaelic psychology terminology.
