Areas of expertise I am broadly interested in how motor systems deal with incoming sensory information to guide behaviour. My research to date has focused on the visual and oculomotor systems. We have recently acquired the capability of studying the role of vision in other motor behaviours (e.g. head movements, reaching and grasping, locomotion). The methods I use include eye tracking, motion capture, visual psychophysics, and computational modelling.
