I graduated in psychology from UCL, and after an MA at Princeton, joined the MRC Applied Psychology Unit in Cambridge, where I completed a PhD. After several years on the scientific staff of the APU I moved to the U of Sussex in Experimental Psychology, then to a chair at Stirling university, before returning to the APU as Director.
