Publications

Below is a complete list of all my scientific publications, in reverse date order by year. In most cases, clicking on the title will take you to a PDF of the paper (unless it is still in press). Known typos are listed in an errata link by the relevant paper — please let me know if you find any more! In my more recent papers, I have also often published the computer code used to analyse data, run simulations and generate figures. Links to the code, where available, are provided under each paper.

I publish in a range of areas, from insect vision to clinical vision tests. If you are interested in seeing what I have published in a particular area, this browser may be helpful.
