I have been a researcher in psychology, and espcially human perception for the whole of my career. Before moving to Stirling in 1988 I held a Scientist post at the MRC Applied Psychology Unit in Cambridge.
I have been involved as expert witness in a range of different forensic settings. The most significant was when I was instructued to provide evidence for the Cullen Inquiry into the Paddington Rail Disaster.
I have been a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh since 1995.
I am an active researcher with interests in many aspects of human perception. I approach my research with a combination of empirical methods - measuring what people can perceive - and computational methods - developing and assessing computer models of the neuronal processes in human perception.
