Research Interests

My main research interests are in dyslexia and visual selective attention. Together with my PhD student, Rizan Cassim, we have been investigating visual attention modulation in adults dyslexia and in particular the roles of cueing, crowding and increasing numbers of distractors.  I am also  interested in what guides visual attention and in particular the role of long term and working memory in the guidance of visual attention.
