I have an honours degree in Psychology (GBC accredited) and a Ph.D. in Vision Science (Optometry) awarded by the University of Bradford (2003). Following my Ph.D., I conducted work on an EPSRC funded project investigating models of visual texture perception. Following post-doctoral work, I lectured in biological and cognitive psychology at Trinity & All Saints College, University of Leeds (lecturer), and Leeds Metropolitan University (Senior Lecturer) until 2008. I am employed by the Division of Psychology as a learning support officer. I am currently a blended learning champion and digital champion for the division.
