I received my PhD in 2011 from the University of Sydney, before completing postdoctoral positions at the University of Sydney and Macquarie University in Sydney, and at McGill University in Montréal, Canada. I joined UNSW in 2020. My research aims to understand the workings of human visual system and its interaction with related brain systems (e.g the influences of task, attention and memory on visual processes). I use behavioural methods (psychophysics) as well as neuroimaging (fMRI and MEG). I am currently funded by the Australian Research Council, working on projects to investigate the neural mechanisms underlying two phenomena in visual perception: feature binding and colour constancy, and in resolving visual ambiguity. For further details of my research, see http://goddardlab.psy.unsw.edu.au/
