I have recently published a book on the psychology of voting with Elliot and Thompson exploring the biases we bring to the political process. You can read more at: http://www.eandtbooks.com/book/whats-your-bias-surprising-science-why-we-vote-way-we-do
I teach a 3rd year module on the Psychology of Politics (PALS3011), and a first year module introducing the Neural Basis of Memory, Language and Perception (PALS1007)
I studied Experimental Psychology at the University of Bristol, and then an Economic and Research Council funded Masters (with Charles Fernyhough) and PhD (with David Milner FRS and Robert Kentridge) at Durham University. I then worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Leuven working on the Gestalt Revision program of Johan Wagemans. I also spent time as a visiting researcher with Geraint Rees at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (UCL), Glyn Humphreys at the University of Oxford, and Catherine Tallon-Baudry at the University Hospital Pitié-Salpêtrière in Paris.
