Rhianna Watt


Research Assistant

I am a research assistant with the Oxford Brain & Cognition Lab, using a range of techniques from eye-tracking and EEG to virtual reality (VR), to learn about all things attention, memory and perception. In particular, I'm currently using virtual reality to understand how we engage in visual search in more realistic, true-to-life tasks. Additionally, I'm also working on projects focused on 'premembering' - the notion that our long- and short-term memories guide our perception and selective attention, amongst other things.

More broadly, I am also interested in the area of reading and language development, which was the subject of my undergraduate research project.

I completed my undergraduate degree with a 1st in Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford in 2022.
