About me

I am an optometrist with a PhD from the State University of New York, College of Optometry in the area of oculomotor control and have previously held research posts at the MRC Applied Psychology Unit and at BAE Systems, Advanced Technology Centre, Human Factors Department. While working for over 20 years as a Research Scientist at BAE Systems, I successfully secured significant external research funding from the MOD and EU supporting my research specialties: eye tracking, intelligent surveillance, behaviour analysis, novel MMI techniques, work-load, situational awareness, visual displays, and the measurement of human performance. I was appointed Senior Lecturer in the Department of Optometry at UWE in June 2018, and am also currently a Medical Optometrist at Bristol Eye Hospital working within the Medical Retina Service.
