iTrack lab members who have moved on to new positions.


Dr. Ruth Filik (University of Nottingham, UK)

Obtained her first degree from the University of Nottingham and her PhD from the University of Derby. Worked at the Applied Vision Research Institute in Derby, investigating cognitive aspects of medical errors. She then worked as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant with Prof. Tony Sanford and Dr. Patrick Sturt on an EPSRC funded project on underspecification in anaphoric reference. She is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working on an ESRC funded project investigating the Presupposition-Denial theory of Complement Set Focus with Dr. Linda Moxey.


Dr. Christopher Hand (University of Bedfordshire, UK)

After completing my undergraduate degree (M.A. Hons. Psychology, 1st Class, 2005) and Master's degree (M.Sc. Research Methods in Psychology, with Distinction, 2006) at the University of Glasgow, I am currently studying for a PhD under the supervision of Dr. Sara C. Sereno. My current research interests relate to the use of launch site as a dynamic tool to investigate parafoveal preview benefit. I am also interested in comparing multiple paradigms used to examine preview. My other interests involve contextual predictability and its temporal dynamics, orthographic neighbourhood, and aspects of embodiment in language processing.



Dr. S├ębastien Miellet (University of Glasgow, UK)

I am currently Postdoc Research Associate in the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi).

Research topics:

Influence of culture in face and scene processing, using eye-tracking and EEG (with Dr. R. Caldara)

Neural correlates of integrated perception and imitation of others using MEG (with Dr. K. Kessler)


PhD in Lille (France): Eye-tracking to study lexical access during reading and dyslexia.

September 2005 - December 2007: Postoc RA with Dr. S. Sereno, University of Glasgow

My current interests are: eye movement control,  visual attention, face and scene processing, computational models, reading.



Dr. Joanne Ingram (University of Bedfordshire, UK)

After completing an undergraduate degree in Psychology (M.A.Hons) at Glasgow University in 2002 I returned in 2005 to begin work on a 1 + 3 ESRC studentship supervised by Dr Linda Moxey.

I graduated with an M.Sc in Research Methods in Psychology in 2006 and my Masters thesis investigated the focusing patterns of Natural Language Quantifiers.

My PhD research investigates aspects of referential focus and information framing using desires, polarities and inferences during language production and comprehension. 



Dr. Graham Scott (University of Aberdeen, UK)

Current Research

The processing of emotional words

Emotional language and motivation in consumer psychology

Impression formation on social networking sites

Factors influencing victim blame attribution in male sexual assault



Dr. Hamutal Kreiner (University of Haifa, Israel)

I am interested in integrative processes in language processing, in the role of working memory and prosody in language processing and in reading comprehension and acquisition. To study these topics I have used various behavioural methods such as acoustic speech analysis and eye-tracking.

I am currently working as a Post-Doc with Prof. Simon Garrod and Dr. Patrick Sturt on an ESRC funded project that investigates the time course and integration of syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic representaions in anaphora resolution. I obtained my PhD in Cognitive Psychology in the Department of Psychology at University of Haifa, Israel, in the Institute of Information Processing and Decision Making (IIPDM).
