He is a lecturer on the Perception and Visual Cognition courses at each level along with Physiological Psychology at Level 3. He is particularly interested in "low-level" vision (i.e. physiological mechanisms). In his research he investigates visual perception using behavioural techniques (quantitative psychophysics).

Additional research interests include visual appearance (especially in medical applications), visual aesthetics and autism.
