Research

My research focuses on the computational representations and processes underlying human spatial cognition. I am particularly interested in developing cognitive models within the broader theory of the human cognitive architecture called Adaptive Control of Thought-Rational (ACT-R).

I combine experimental methods from cognitive psychology, eye tracking technology and formal modelling approaches to investigate diagrammatic reasoning, mental imagery, decision making and object location memory.

My current research is funded by Dstl and is investigating how a mathematical model of learning and retention based on ACT-R can be used to predict when Defence personnel require refresher training in order to retain vital skills.
