Gavin (who is too lazy to turn this blurb into 1st person) is an experimental psychologist, who received his doctorate in 2008 from the University of Aberdeen under the supervision of Dr. David Carey. His PhD thesis examined attentional allocation and attentional asymmetries during bimanual tasks. After completing his PhD, he moved to Canada to work as a Commonwealth postdoctoral fellow, then a Banting postdoctoral fellow at the Brain and Mind Institute under the supervision of Professor Mel Goodale. During this time, he began to study fingertip force application and perceptions of heaviness in the context of weight illusions. He has since become interested examining these issues in more applied contexts, such as upper-limb prosthetics and robot-assisted surgery. He is currently a senior lecturer in the department Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Exeter, where he runs the Object Interaction Lab. You can find his Google Scholar profileĀ here. His Twitter handle is @DrGBuckingham.
