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. Main research interests are in how personality is portrayed through our voices, and the influence this has on those we interact with; and in animacy and intent perception, and how global motion can be used to determine the actions and intent of others. Both studied via fMRI.

And if it can't be related to cycling then it just isn't worth talking about! This year I am raising money for MacMillan Cancer by riding the Etape Loch Ness in April - all donations are welcome. https://www.justgiving.com/philmcaleer/
