Personal profile


I completed my BSc(Hons) in Biological Science at the University of London, and my MSc and DPhil in Experimental Psychology at the University of Sussex.  I then worked in various post-doctoral positions at CSIRO Food Science, the University of Sydney Department of Psychology and at the Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.  I started as a lecturer at the Department of Psychology, Macquarie University in 1998, and became a Professor in the Department in 2010.

Research interests

My primary interests relate to food and eating, interoception, evolutionary psychology, and applied experimental psychology. My current projects are varied: Regulation of food intake and obesity, Food preferences, Food cravings, Desire, Body image, Junk food, Naturalness, Disgust, Stigmatisation, Time perception, Microdosing, Multisensory perception, Hallucinations, Imagery, Chemosensory perception and 'Voodoo' science. 

Research student supervision

I have supervised alone or together, a range of projects, including studies on epilepsy, multisensory perception, synesthesia, hallucinations, nutritional neuroscience, managing child behavior, food cravings, phobias and disgust.  All of these projects have used a myriad of different populations and approaches - neuroimaging, neuropsychology, experimental methods, developmental psychology, surveys, interviews and clinical trials.
