I am interested in the neural dynamics of visual object representation and visual attention. My current studies concern rapid transformations that luminance and chromatic inputs
undergo at each of the successive stages of the visual hierarchy. I use a combination of psychophysical and EEG methods to reveal rapidly-ocurring integrative processes that
characterise visual processing.
In the past, my work has been funded by the DAAD and ESRC. Currently I am funded by BBSRC to investigate the early advantage of luminance for object representation and
its cross-talk with chromatic pathways in human visual scene analysis. I am conducting this work in Aberdeen together with my postdoc Mr Ben Jennings. You can find more
information about this ongoing research on our project website. I am also involved on a DFG-funded project into the neural mechanisms of visual object representation, which is
conducted at the University of Leipzig with Prof Matthias M Mueller and Dr Matt Craddock.
Other ongoing collaborations include: Matt Field and Paul Christiansen, University of Liverpool (attentional bias for alcohol-related cues); Søren Andersen, University of California,
San Diego and Sophie Wuerger, University of Liverpool (colour-based attention), Thomas Gruber (object recognition), Corinna Haenschel, City University London (inputs into visual
working memory) and Andreas Keil, University of Florida, Gainsville (the role of visual pathways in emotional conditioning).
