Dr David Robertson

Lecturer

Psychology

Personal statement

I completed my degree in Psychology at the University of Glasgow in 2009. I gained my PhD from the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience in 2014, under the supervision of Professor Nilli Lavie (www.attention-focus.com), and funded by an MRC PhD Studentship. I then held a post-doctoral position in Professor Mike Burton's FaceVar Lab (www.facevar.com) at the University of Aberdeen and then the University of York (2013-2017). I moved to my current role at University of Strathclyde Psychology in 2017. I combine my lecturing responsibilities with ongoing research in attention, perception, and face recognition.
