My research interests centre around sensory substitution. Chiefly, my research is concerned with the practical development of better sensory substitution devices (SSDs), but I am also interested in theoretical aspects of sensory substitution, such as comparisons with synaesthesia.
Formerly a tutor on Psychobiology and Cognitive Psychology I (both 1st year undergraduate courses). Currently developing a postgraduate introduction to using Matlab to produce behavioural psychology experiments.
