Main research interests are in how personality is portrayed through our voices, and the influence this has on those we interact with. I look at this through both behavioral and neuroimaging studies via fMRI. I graduated from Glasgow in 2002 (B.Sc. Psychology) and completed my Ph.D. in 2006, in the PACo Lab, Glasgow, on "Understanding Intentions in Animacy Displays Derived from Human Motion". I then worked on two post-docs looking at intent perception by people with ASDs, and by CCTV operators. From there I spent 2 years post-doc in the Voice Neurocognition Lab, Glasgow, looking at perceived personality in voices. I have been a UT since 2012, and mainly lecture in Statistics and Research Methods.

And if it can't be related to cycling then it just isn't worth talking about!
