Biography

My research interests are in Cognitive Psychology. I am interested in memory, decision-making, attention, and categorization. My work is in developing quantitative models for cognition. More recently, I have also become interested in Bayesian statistics.

Education

  • PhD in Quantitative Psychology (University of Newcastle, 2010)
  • BPsych (Hons. Class 1, 2005)
  • BMath (2006)

 

RESEARCH

 

Research Goals

  • To understand human cognition
  • Develop and test mathematical models of behaviour
  • To encourage researchers to consider their choice of statistical inference

Research in Detail

I develop and test mathematical models of cognition, including theories of short-term memory, how people make decisions, how people classify and categorize the world, and how people deploy their attention in complex tasks.

Research Grants

Supervision Opportunities/Areas

I am looking to supervise people in all areas of Cognitive Psychology. This includes human memory, decision-making, attention, categorization, and many other exciting areas.

Advice for prospective students

If you want to do a PhD in Psychology, learn to write computer code, and become comfortable with data and statistics. These things turn out to really matter.
