I joined the Department of Psychology in 2016 as a Lecturer in Experimental Psychology, School of Social and Life Sciences. Prior to this, I gained a First Class in Bsc (Hons) in Psychology and a PhD in Psychology at The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus, entitled “Cognitive aspects of driving in Malaysia: Perception and Judgments”. I am also a Chartered Member of British Psychological Society.

My current research interest falls into two main themes. I’m interested in cognitive processes which involves in driving, mainly looking at how different factors affect drivers’ perception, decision-making, safety judgments, and drivers’ attention. In addition, I’m also interested in investigating how socio-cognitive processes plays a role in driving, such as drivers’ ability in judging the intention of other road users and mentalising skills. I do experimental research by using a variety of techniques and programs, which includes eye tracking measures, E-prime and PsychoPy. I’m also interested in doing research by using other physiological measures and assessments such as skin conductance, EEG, oculus and questionnaire in the future.
