My research examines cognitive processes underlying the learning and skilled performance of visually guided skills across domains (e.g., sport, surgery, military, driving, aviation); ability levels (e.g., from expert performers to patient groups); and the lifespan (from children to elderly patients). A major focus of this work has been the study of objective measures of visual attention (primarily using gaze tracking technology) and the influence of anxiety on attention and subsequent performance.
