Psychology (School of Social Sciences and Psychology)
Research Program: Multisensory Communication
John was awarded his PhD in 2005 from the University of New South Wales in the area of visual psychophysics. A major research theme is sensory dynamics: such questions as how do sensory processes evolve over time; what temporal information are we sensitive to; and how do we perceive time?
Other research interests include the effects of context on visual perception such as "visual crowding" and the perceptual integration of audio and visual information.
- Role of temporal synchrony in multi-sensory processing
- Temporal vision
- Spatial vision
- Visual crowding and macular degeneration
