Nonie J. Finlayson (CV)
Postdoc (Cognitive Neuroscience)



I was born and raised in outback Australia , but escaped to urban Queensland in time for my schooling. I moved to Brisbane where I completed my honours in Psychological Science (via business and music) at the University of Queensland in 2008. After taking a year off to explore Canada and Europe, I finally realised that my place was in research, so I returned to the University of Queensland, where I undertook a PhD in cognitive psychology. My doctoral research explored how depth information interacted with our visual search processes, under the watchful eyes of Phil Grove and Roger Remington in the REAL lab.

My first postdoc was with Julie Golomb and her Cognitive Neuroscience lab at the Ohio State University Psychology department, where I explored the representation of 3D space in human visual cortex. My second postdoc was with Sam Schwarzkopf and his Lab at UCL’s Department of Experimental Psychology, where I focused on the individual differences in visual perception and the functional architecture of human visual cortex.

I am currently a postdoc with Stefanie Becker at The University of Queensland. Here I am exploring selective attention strategies, and the underlying neural and behavioural processes.
