Professor Steve Tipper joins the Department

Posted on 20 June 2012

Professor Steve Tipper will join the Department of Psychology at the University of York in January 2013.

Professor Tipper gained his PhD from the University of Oxford in 1985 and spent some years in Canada (first at Mount Allison University, then at McMaster University) before joining the University of Wales, Bangor as Professor of Cognitive Science in 1993. 

He is one of Britain’s most influential experimental psychologists, and is particularly well known for his work on the role of inhibition in attention and, more generally, the relationship between perception and action. 

His current interests span a wide range of phenomena linking action, attention and social cognition and their brain mechanisms.
