I am a teaching and research academic in the area of human sensation and perception. I have worked in both physiology and psychology departments in the UK, Canada and Australia. My primary research interests lie in colour perception, motion perception, time perception, and individual differences in perception. I am particularly interested in the nexus between colour perception and motion perception and how this relates to underlying structure of the system. More recently I have been focussing on colour perception and the nature of hallucination in both normal and clinical populations and the role that personality has to play in what we see.

I am as inspired by the arts as much as by the sciences, and both influence my teaching and research significantly.

Justified, ancient and bound for Mu-mu Land.
