A native of the Greater London area, Dr Giles Anderson grew up in west London, before heading to Exeter University to do a degree in Chemistry. Following this, he trained as a journalist at the London College of Printing before becoming a magazine writer and editor, focusing on the topics of science, the internet and psychology.
Dr Anderson then converted his degree to Psychology at the London Metropolitan University, where he became interested in visual attention and how the brain interprets and selects vision information. After completing a Masters of Research at the University of Birmingham, he remained at the institution, obtaining a PhD in visual cognition working with Glyn Humphreys and Dietmar Heinke.
Post-PhD, Dr Anderson has been continuing his research at the university as a School Instructor/Teaching Fellow whilst teaching and tutoring psychology undergraduates.
