Personal profile

Personal Statement

I joined the University of Strathclyde in 2003. My background is in vision science and this is reflected in my teaching and research. I am the;

  • Programme Leader for the MSc Psychology with a Specialisation in Business conversion programme
  • Humanities and Social Sciences Faculty Academic Advisor for the University of Strathclyde International Study Centre
  • Co-Director of Internationalisation for the School of Psychological Sciences and Health
  • International exchange liaison officer for Psychology
  • Disability contact for Psychology


Academic / Professional qualifications

I graduated with a PhD from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2002. I have been a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) since 2011 and have been an Associate Fellow of the BPS since 2012.

I have been a fellow of the Higher Education Academy since 2012.

Teaching Interests

My main teaching interest relates to my background in vision science: visual perception and the visual system. I use this knowledge of the visual system to teach undergraduate and postgraduate students how information is processed from eye through to brain, indicating how and when these processes sometimes fail. As well as the mechanics of the visual system, I teach visual perception. 

Research Interests

My primary research interest is in depth perception, specifically stereoscopic depth perception. I am also interested in other areas of visual perception including face perception, perception of emotion, letter recognition and identification. A newer research interest is stereotype threat.
