Research interests

My broad area of interest is selective attention, and in particular the processes determining whether we can successfully attend to relevant information whilst ignoring irrelevant stimuli. My research background has focused upon selective attention in the visual domain. For example, my final year dissertation of my BSc at Goldsmiths investigated the effect of perceptual load on affordance of common graspable objects. Through my PhD, I am now extending my research into the auditory modality. I am particularly planning to investigate whether the principles of the load theory can also apply to hearing.
