Although my research is best described as comparative cognition, it spans traditional psychology core topics (such as cognition, learning, perception, biopsychology and social psychology) as well as behavioural ecology, human ethology and evolutionary psychology. My current research projects use human and avian (noisy miners) subjects and investigate spatial cognition (birds), attractiveness (humans), visual attention (humans) and lateralization (humans and birds).
