Dr Daniel Yon

Daniel is a Lecturer in Psychology at Goldsmiths. He joined the Department in September 2019. His research looks at the way our actions and expectations influence how we perceive and make decisions about the world around us, and he uses a mixture of techniques from psychology and cognitive neuroscience to answer these questions. You can read more about some of these ideas here or on his website.

Daniel would be happy to hear from students interested in joining the group to pursue some of these research questions (e.g., for a PhD).
