It is a great pleasure to introduce Dr Rebekah White, who will take up the second post-doctoral research position within the Ordered Universe. Rebekah will be based in Oxford, working with Hannah Smithson in the Department of Experimental Psychology, and will be drawing together scientific commentary on Grosseteste’s treatises on natural philosophy, as well as teasing out the inspiration for modern science through experiment and wider discussion. We are very glad to have Rebekah on board, and look forward very much indeed to working with her. In her own words:
I completed a Bachelor of Arts/Science and an MPhil in Psychology at the Australian National University, followed by a DPhil in Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford. My first postdoctoral position was a Junior Research Fellowship at Christ Church, and I am delighted to be commencing my second postdoctoral position as a member of the Ordered Universe team. My previous work has spanned several areas of Cognitive Psychology, including somatosensory processing, body awareness and representation, inattentional blindness, crossmodal perception, and synaesthesia. I am excited by the interdisciplinary nature of the Ordered Universe project, and look forward to designing experiments inspired by Grosseteste’s treatises.
