About Research

Tel: 020 8240 4363


Lori obtained a BSc in Psychology with Cognitive Science (1st class honours) and a PhD in Psychology from University College London. She completed her postdoctoral training in functional neuroimaging at the University of Oxford, where she investigated the properties of the visuomotor and visuocognitive systems, with an emphasis on binocular integration in visual cortex.

Before coming to St Mary’s Lori taught Research Methods and Statistics as a lecturer at the Department of Experimental Psychology, Oxford University. She also has experience in supervising doctoral students. In 2019 Lori became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in recognition of her professional commitment to teaching in higher education.

Research profile

Lori’s research focuses on visual perception and visuomotor control. She uses psychophysical, optoelectronic and functional neuroimaging techniques, including retinotopic mapping, to investigate visual processes in humans; in particular, the parcellation of function in the dorsal (visuomotor) and ventral (visuocognitive) visual systems.
