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 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. In 2013, he was appointed as a lecturer in the Psychology department Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. He was appointed as a lecturer in Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Exeter from February 2016, where he runs the Object Interaction Lab. You can find his Google Scholar profile here.
