Graeme graduated with a degree in Optometry from Glasgow Caledonian University in 1996 and, after completing a pre-registration training year, qualified as an optometrist in 1997. After several years as a practising optometrist, Graeme returned to GCU and completed a PhD in visual psychophysics, a discipline which uses performance in perceptual tasks to investigate the neural mechanisms involved in processing visual information. Subsequently, he spent 18 months as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Bradford University, and returned again to GCU in the summer of 2008 to take up his current post as Lecturer in Optometry. Graeme's current research interests are in the area of visual psychophysics, particularly spatial vision, shape and contour perception, and the attentional tracking of multiple moving objects.
