About

My current research centres on cognitive and affective mechanisms of creative thinking processes and understanding how they can be facilitated and expressed. Over my career, I have published broadly on how we perceive, interact with and create our world. My work has taken me into the perceptual worlds of autistic children, radiologists, elite sports players, and African populations, the MRI brain imaging lab, the school classroom, the countryside and the studio/work of creative professionals in domains such as PR and garden design. I am Professor of Psychology, Cognition and Creativity at the University of Winchester, Visiting Professor at the University of Surrey, an Associate of the Institute of Business Creativity, Switzerland, a Chartered Psychologist and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
