I joined the OU in 2007, after completing my PhD at the University of Sussex.
I am an applied cognitive psychologist and my research interests revolve around the practical applications of psychological theory. I am particularly interested in how attention and perception can be affected when dual tasking (for example whilst driving a car and talking on the phone) as well as the effect this has on an individual’s eye movements. My work also crosses into forensic psychology as I’m interested in perceptual factors when witnessing crimes, with a particular focus on eye movements, weapon focus, inattention- and change blindness.
I am a member of the Harm and Evidence Research Collaborative (HERC) and part of the centre's Forensic Cognition Research Group where I work closely with Prof Graham Pike, Dr Nicola Brace, Dr Hayley Ness, Dr Jim Turner, Dr Catriona Harvard, Dr Virginia Harrison, Dr. Martin Thirkettle , Dr. Zoe Walkington and Dr Helen Kaye.
