About

I am currently an academic in the School of Psychology at UNSW Sydney. I am particularly interested in the area of psychology called perception, which relates to our ability to gain information about the world through our senses. My recent research in this area has concentrated on the role of scene lighting in perception and on the impression of the loudness of sound sources.

I am also very interested in the use of technology in education and research. I have created the "Programming for Psychology in Python" site to provide tutorials for using coding in conducting experiments and for data analysis and visualisation. I have also given a talk on this topic at PyCon Australia (video). I also enjoy creating interactive online demonstrations and educational material, such as in this tutorial on "Motion and Measuring Perception".
