Research Associate at the Dept. of Experimental Psychology, University College London


Hi, I'm Rob! I'm a cognitive neuroscientist interested high-level cognition. My research interests include (but are not limited to) visual perception, attention, learning, and memory, and interaction between these cognitive functions. More recently I have become interested in concept formation and abstract thought - how does the brain organise abstract information during learning and thinking?

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Experimental Psychology at UCL (with Brad Love). Before that I was an Investigator Scientist at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in Cambridge (with Niko Kriegeskorte, now at Columbia University). I completed my doctoral training (DPhil) in Experimental Psychology at Oxford (Brain and Cognition lab headed by Kia Nobre). I was fortunate to start my research adventures in the Attention Group headed by the late Jon Driver during my MSc at Birkbeck and UCL.
