Personal profile

Personal profile

My research addresses the psychological mechanisms of human attention, awareness and experience in multisensory contexts.

As part of StoryFutures and StoryFutures Academy, I lead large-scale interdisciplinary studies of user experience and engagement with major industry partners across a wide variety of immersive technologies.

I also run the Attention Lab where we study a range of topics, including: attentional capture; the relationship between attention and awareness; and the way that attention acts within and between the sensory modalities of vision, hearing and touch. We study these topics both from a theoretical perspective and also in more applied contexts, such as driving cars, operating vehicles remotely or piloting aircraft. Our work has been featured by a range of TV and radio stations (including BBC Breakfast TV, Sky News, and BBC Radio 5Live) as well as print media (including The Telegraph and The Guardian in the UK and MSNBC in the US). Click here for the latest news from the lab.
