I'm a senior lecturer in biological psychology at Bath Spa University, and an award-winning science writer. I coordinate the science blog network for the Guardian, and I also write the psychology blog 'Head Quarters' there.

I do research looking at the effects that video games and 'screen time' can have on our behaviour, and I regularly write about controversies in psychology on my blog. I also give public talks on a range of topics in psychology and science blogging.
