I also have a profile at the ARC Centre for Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders.

Profile

I received by PhD in Cognitive Science and L2 Processes at the University of Arizona, where I worked with Professors Ken Forster and Janet Nicol. Afterwards, I did postdoctoral work at Harvard with Professor Alfonso Caramazza, who introduced me to the wonders of cognitive neuropsychology. I now am at MACCS as an Australian Research Fellow and am working on the role of attention in nonconscious processes. You can learn more about me and my work by visiting my personal website.
