Personal profile

Research interests

I am a Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor in Experimental and Cognitive Psychology at the University of Bath and an Honorary Senior Researcher at University College London. My main interest is in understanding how we combine multisensory cues (e.g., vision, audition and touch) throughout the lifespan (e.g., during infancy and childhood) and how this process is affected by experience, expertise, sensory deprivation, and developmental disorders. My interest in multisensory research expands to social cognition and emotion, and I use a combination of methods and techniques (e.g., psychophysics, neuroimaging, neurophysiology, virtual reality) to study the underlying brain mechanisms.
