I’m a Discovery Early Career Research Fellow in the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences. My PhD, completed at the University of Cambridge, was concerned with inter-individual differences in visual and auditory perception, and how these differences can be influenced—or even determined—by our genes. Afterwards, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the School of Psychology at the University of Sydney, studying temporal aspects of visual, auditory and tactile perception. Now back at the University of Melbourne, I am working to identify mechanisms in the eye and brain that connect genetic variation to individual differences in perception and performance.
