School of Psychology

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences


Daniel is an organisational psychologist and human factors researcher. His research focuses on predicting and preventing errors in high risk environments, including driving, cybersecurity and electrical power distribution. Daniel’s recent work has examined the relationships between cue-based processing, cognitive load, sustained attention, and performance in a range of technical domains. He has a particular focus on applied research, with the goal of developing assessment tools and interventions that can be used to assist industry partners in the selection, training and management of experienced personnel.
