Biography

I am Professor of Psychology and Director of the International Research Centre for Investigative Psychology and joined Huddersfield University in 2009. I was formerly Professor of Psychology at Liverpool University from 1994, where I directed the Centre for Investigative Psychology and established the MSc in Investigative Psychology. Before that I held the positions of Lecturer, Reader and then Professor and Head of Department at The University of Surrey, starting in 1971, developing the world's first MSc programme in Environmental Psychology and subsequently Investigative Psychology. From 1969 to 1971, I was Research Fellow at Tokyo University on a Leverhulme Fellowship. My first lecturing position was taken up at Strathclyde University in the School of Architecture growing out of membership of The Building Performance Research Unit, starting 1968.
