Personal profile

Research interests

I graduated with a BA (Hons.) and MSc from the University of Auckland and then an MSc and PhD from the University of Edinburgh where my major research focus was the Psychology of Language. Since then, I’ve been in research posts at the Universities of Glasgow, Aberdeen and Bristol.

The major theme of my research to date has involved investigating the temporal dynamics of attention during cognitive tasks. In my current role I work with adults and children, using neuroimaging methods (EEG and fMRI) to look at the activity in peoples brains so as to understand the “how and where” of their concept of Self.

Currently, my teaching involves a role as the director of second-year Psychology. I co-ordinate a first-year unit on Social Psychology and lecture in second- and third-year units on Social Psychology, Individual Differences, and Evolutionary Psychology.
