Professor Nick Donnelly to deliver Inaugural Professorial Lecture

Head of Psychology Professor Nick Donnelly will deliver his Inaugural Professorial Lecture on Wednesday 3rd April.

Entitled Applying visual perception research: linking theory and experimentation to issues in the real world, the lecture will focus on Professor Donnelly’s visual cognition research.

He said: “The lecture explores some of the research in visual cognition that I, with various colleagues, have conducted over the last few years and explains why it has value beyond the laboratory. I will show how studies we have conducted in the laboratory provide insights into topics such as the search for threats in airport security screening to the spectatorship of paintings.”

Professor Donnelly took up his post as Head of the Department of Psychology in September 2018. He brings to the role a wealth of experience from his time working at other major UK universities. In particular, he spent 10 years as Head of the School of Psychology at the University of Southampton. He has worked in a multidisciplinary way throughout his career with colleagues from the humanities, medicine and engineering. He has also worked closely with colleagues from beyond the university sector, especially so in relation to using his work to improve personal safety. 

Professor Donnelly’s Inaugural Lecture will be held in the Senate Room, Hope Park, on Wednesday 3rd April 2019. Refreshments will be available from 5pm, with the lecture beginning at 5.30pm.

All are welcome.
