Prof Nick Scott-Samuel


My research was initially concerned with the visual perception of motion by humans, but I?ve become sidetracked over time by various other things, including the perception of food and drink, camouflage, visual search and the estimation of numerosity.


After degrees in Philosophy (BA) at the University of Bristol and Cognitive Science (MSc) at the University of Birmingham, my PhD (supervised by Mark Georgeson at the University of Birmingham) addressed human visual motion processing. I was a postdoc for four years, working first with Andy Smith (at Royal Holloway, University of London) and then with Robert Hess (at McGill University). I was appointed Lecturer in Psychology here in 2001.
