I completed my PhD in Experimental Psychology at University of Toronto in 2015, with a thesis titled “Associative Learning as a Source of Visual Bias” (advisor: Jay Pratt). My doctoral research was supported by an Alexander Graham Bell doctoral scholarship from NSERC. I was a visiting researcher at University of Vienna in 2014 (host: Ulrich Ansorge) and a postdoctoral fellow at Leiden University (2015-2016, host: Bernhard Hommel). In 2016, I received a VENI grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), though I declined it and moved to University of Macau to take up an Assistant Professor position in Department of Psychology (2016-2021). I have taught courses on cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and theoretical psychology. My book, Experimental Psychology and Human Agency was published by Springer in 2019.
My primary research concerns are with theoretical and conceptual problems in psychology. If you would like to sample my work, see the articles “Behaviour versus performance” and “Building blocks of psychology“. If you have more patience and interest, you could check out my book. This book contains a detailed critique of experimental psychology, written primarily for graduate students who use experimental methods. However, the book also has a few things to offer to the general readership about the nature of psychological research and its (non)relationship to everyday life.
