Current Research Projects

Understanding trust to improve social interactions

Why is trust decreasing in society? This research project explores how negative social interactions can erode trust and how positive social interactions can rebuild it.

How do predators affect foraging decisions

This project explores the role of predators on individual behaviour through a videogame. We explore how changes in predator abundance and location affects foraging decisions.

Using technology to improve student outcomes in science

Students use technology in their everyday lives, but how can it be used more positively? This project explores how technology can provide students with hands-on learning experiences.

How does deimatic behaviour affect predator foraging

This project explores the evolution of deimatic phenotypes and behaviours – how animals are camouflaged but display warning colouration when startled.

How videogames help students understand ethics

What causes variance in ethical viewpoints and how this changes over time. This project explores how a videogame coupled with students discussions affect ethical perspectives.

Using videogames to assess mental ageing

Standard assessment practices of cognitive health require licensed practitioners, making them costly. This project explores the use of videogames to more easily assess patients.
