Biography

I have an honours degree in Psychology (GBC accredited) and a PhD in Visual Psychophysics (Optometry) awarded by the University of Bradford. I was awarded  'best talk at conference'' by Alan Cowey (Emeritus Professor of Physiological Psychology at the University of Oxford) in 1999 at an Applied Vision Association  conference hosted by City University London. I was a named post-doctoral researcher on an EPSRC funded project investigating models of texture perception.  I took up a first lectureship at Leeds Trinity University and moved to Leeds Metropolitan University where I became a Senior lecturer in Biological Psychology and was module leader for several courses there. I am now a psychology learning support officer here in the Division of Psychology which is a part academic, part technical role. I help students with any academic problems they may have and provide technical and academic support across most of the psychological curriculum to both undergraduate (BSc/BA) and post-graduate students (MSc and PhD) and lecturing staff. I am currently pursuing several of my own research interests in my own time.
