Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in how we can use simulated environments, technology and feedback to reduce anxiety and improve performance. 

Anxiety, social performance and mental health: I specialise in social cognition, face processing and attention and am currently developing the MIND Hub as a digital mental health research and data services centre which focuses on providing consultancy, validation and research project services; development of digital content and data curation using machine learning and artificial intelligence. Further to this I am interested in face processing and cognitive biases in social judgments. 

Performance training and assessment: I founded the Medical Education Lab (MEL) to work across disciplines bringing together clinicians, academics and SMEs to develop problem based solutions for medical training Technologies include digital tools for Med x (Virtual, augmented and mixed realities); haptics; eye-tracking; 3D object recognition; data capture systems; human-robot interaction; gaming and visualisation technologies; robotics for capturing surgical skills and training.
