Welcome to my site.
Short biography. I am Emeritus Professor of Psychology at the University of Dundee, Scotland, and a writer, science journalist, public speaker, and comedian. I was formerly Chair of Cognitive Psychology at Dundee, where I was Head of Department and then Dean from 2003 until 2016. I am now a full time writer and speaker. I am author of several books, including the best-selling text The Psychology of Language, currently in its fourth edition, and The Psychology of Weather. My research interests are wide, including language, consciousness, sleep and dreams, ageing, futurology, and psychology and the weather. I have suffered all my life from severe anxiety and depression, another topic of research, and write, talk, and blog about it.
