My doctoral training was at Bristol University, where in 1998 I gained a PhD in Psychology for my thesis entitled ‘Task Dependent Factors in Perceptual Grouping’, with Prof. Tom Troscianko as supervisor. I then worked with Prof. Jon Driver as a postdoctoral research fellow, in the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL, until 2007. During that period I travelled to the Weizmann Institute in Israel to study with Prof. Dov Sagi, and to the Smith-Kettlewell Institute in San Francisco to study with Dr. Preeti Verghese. After my postdoctoral training, I worked for two years teaching Research Methods as a lecturer in Psychology at Brunel University, West London, before accepting my present post as lecturer at City University in 2009.
