Research interests

I am currently involved in a number of projects relating to human visual cognition. Much of this involves examining eye movement behaviour as people search their environment for given targets. In the past, my work has been funded by a number of different groups and organisations (ESRC, Dstl, and others besides). My interest in eye-tracking has resulted in the development of an R package geared towards cleaning and processing eye-tracking datasets, called eyeTrackR.
