Research Interests

My general research interests lie in two main areas. The first is understanding how the use of modern screen-based technology, particularly video games, affect behavioural, social and cognitive development during childhood and adolescence. The second is an interest in the development of multidisciplinary methodologies that bring together my experience in vision and social psychology, in order to look at how we can best evaluate science outreach events (both live and online) in a robust and objective manner.
