My research concerns human performance and how to model it. Current work centres on computational models for perception and memory with emphasis on decision and choice in speeded-performance tasks.

Other interests

I am actively involved in the development of the High Performance Computing Lab, a supercomputer centre established by a consortium of four Eastern Ontario universities: Queen's, Carleton, RMC and Ottawa.

I am the Editor of the Canadian Journal of Experimental Psychology.
