Senior Lecturer of Psychology, Royal Holloway

My research investigates the interaction of signals from different sensory modalities, primarily between vestibular, visual and somatosensory inputs. Using a range of techniques from neuroscience, neurophysiology and experimental psychology, I have demonstrated that vestibular–multisensory interactions are crucial in several cognitive processes, including spatial representation, decision-making, bodily awareness, motor control, perspective taking, and gravity processing. My work is funded by project grants from the British Academy, Royal Society, European Low Gravity Research Association and European Space Agency.
