Associate Professor in Psychology
- BSc (Hons.) Psychology, 2001, Cardiff University
- PhD Psychology, 2005, Cardiff University
I give lectures on cognition in humans and other animals, as part of these modules:
PSYC513: Cognition and Biological Psychology
PSYC108PP: Psychobiological and Cognitive Aspects of Health Behaviour
I am the Module Lead for PSYC411.
My research is concerned with basic psychological mechanisms, especially those related to learning. I am particularly interested in causal learning, and how well existing computational models of learning can account for behaviour. I am also interested in everyday phenomena that are governed by these fundamental processes, and I have published work on topics ranging from navigation to the acquisition of food preferences. I am also interested in ADHD, and especially in how it affects learning and attention.
