Research Interests (key words only)

Human time perception, Psychophysics, Vision.

Teaching and Supervisory Responsibilities

  • Supervision of a range of undergraduate teaching clinics.


I qualified as an Optometrist in 2009 and worked in practice full-time for over four years. During this time I became accredited with the Local Enhanced Services scheme to provide additional eye care services within North Yorkshire, and helped with the supervision of two pre-registration students.

I began my PhD in 2013, researching the mechanisms of human time perception using psychophysical techniques. Whilst at the University of Bradford I have presented my research at both national and international conferences, winning a prize in 2016 for “Best Paper” at the British Congress of Optometry and Vision Science for my talk on “The binocularity of visual time”.

In addition, in 2016 I was also awarded the Master’s Medal from the Worshipful Company of Spectacle Makers in 2016 for my paper entitled “Object size determines the spatial spread of visual time”.
