    Research Interests

    Perception-Action coupling - How the calibration between processing the information specifying the dynamics of an unfolding event and the ability for an individual to act within a temporal window changes across the life span. I have a particular interest in how this applies in road crossing and what determines the 'crossabilitiy' of a gap between cars. The use of virtual reality allows us to unpick what mistakes are being made in the identifcation of a gap that affords safe crossing.
