Personal profile

Personal Statement

I joined Psychology at Strathclyde in September 2004, following a MA (Hons) and PhD in Psychology at the University of Glasgow. My research background is in cognitive psychology, particularly visual attention. I have growing research interests in dementia (experience of carers, as well as those individuals diagnosed with dementia), and in pedagogical research, particularly in the area of assessment and feedback.

Teaching Interests

At undergraduate level, I am class leader for Research Methods in Psychology (C8302), and also teach on Cognition and Neuropsychology (C8201), Introduction to Research Design and Analysis (C8203), and Psychobiology (C8306). I also supervise honours dissertation projects, and contribute to the assessment on all third year psychology classes.

I supervise postgraduate research projects on the MSc in Research Methods in Psychology.
