I am interested in how environmental attributes impact upon an individual's perception of speed; predominantly looking at how different luminance conditions (or levels of lighting) can influence how fast an object appears to be moving. My work has also focused on how luminance may have an effect on the mechanisms of adaptation to motion.

As well as using traditional psychophysical methods within my research, I have also employed real world paradigms, such as simulated driving tasks, in order to explore how the effect of luminance on speed perception may have an applied bearing on everyday activities such as driving behaviours.

My PhD is being conducted under the supervision of Dr Stephen Hammett and Professor John Wann.
