Personal profile


My interest in perception was stimulated early in life by various visual illusions, and by the discovery that I am colour blind. As an undergraduate, I studied Physics at Imperial College, London (UK), before moving to the University of York (UK) to study Psychology where my undergraduate third year project, concerning the relationship between image contrast and perceived speed, was supervised by Professor Peter Thompson.

At the University of Sussex (UK), I completed my doctoral thesis, entitled Mechanisms of Suprathreshold Stereomotion Perception, under the supervision of Professor George Mather. Following my formal education, I continued my research into the perception of motion in depth as Senior Research Associate at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, (USA) with Dr. Leland Stone.

At the University of New South Wales (Australia), a post-doc with Professor Barbara Gillam allowed me to broaden my interest in depth perception to include issues of unmatched stereopsis. A further post-doctoral appointment to work with Professor Richard Kemp allowed me to develop a long standing interest in face perception. After a Senior Lectureship at the University of Plymouth (UK), I returned to Australia to my current position.

Research interests

Motion processing, including the perception of speed and direction.

Binocular depth perception, including stereoscopic art, unpaired stereopsis, and the perception of motion in depth (stereomotion).

Face perception, including face matching and recognition.

Body Perception, including body image and the perception and misperception of body size and shape.

Perceptual adaptation and aftereffects.
