Post-doctoral Research Fellow
School of Psychology
I am a research fellow in the Brain and Cognition Laboratory at Flinders University where I investigate the cognitive neuroscience of new forms of social interaction including emoticons and profile pictures. A good list of my publications is here.
I have appeared as a guest on The Health Report with Dr. Norman Swan and my work has been covered in newspapers and magazines around the world including the Telegraph and the Independent in the UK, Wired and the Smithsonian Magazine in the US and Le Figaro in France .
I have also written articles for The Conversation.

I work with Prof. Mike Nicholls, Dr. Tobias Loetscher and Dr. Nicole Thomas on aspects of attention and hemispheric lateralisation.
