Personal profile

Research interests

I am part of the Crossmodal Cognition Lab at the University of Bath. My research interests broadly centre around sensation and perception, and more specifically focus on Sensory Substitution; using technology to 'swap' the information available in one sensory modality, to another. My PhD is looking at using this technology to help provide greater access to exercise for visually impaired persons. I also have an interest in performance psychology and the study of mindfulness and flow state.

Outside of psychology, I am always happy to have a chat about human-food co-evolution, the influence of technology on modern society, and how science can (or should) impact policy.
