...is a Professor of Psychology at Glasgow and an international expert in the brain mechanisms underlying human perception and cognition. He is known for his work on motion and the perception of complex, dynamic events as well as the use of brain imaging technology to understand how the brain processes these events. His research has been funded by the EPSRC, ESRC, AHRC, EU, British Academy and the US charity Autism Speaks. He is co-author of a Cognitive Psychology textbook published by McGraw-Hill. He has received 3 Best Paper awards, most recently at the prestigious 2016 ACM SIGIR conference. He has over 100 papers in psychology, engineering and neuroscience journals. This work has received ~4,500 citations and he has an H-index of 30 (Google Scholar, July 2018). Pollick has worked on theoretical issues of how the sight and sounds of human actions are processed. This includes work on the visual cues available from movement and the use of fMRI to study brain mechanisms involved in processing this information for both precisely controlled and naturalistic stimuli.

...is a Lecturer in Human Computer Interaction in GIST at the University of Glasgow. She has been the PI or Co-I on funded research worth over £750K exploring unusual display technologies, including as PI on the EPSRC SIPS Project (EP/M00 2675/1) and Co-I on the H2020 FET Open Levitate Project (737087). Her PhD work focused on the social acceptability of multimodal interaction, which she tested on the streets of Glasgow and Bangalore. She was the first to study this area and is a world-leader in the topic. She is an inaugural member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Future of Computing Academy, a prestigious group of early career computing professionals from around the world working to address challenges in computing across research, society, and professional practice. She has over 20 peer reviewed publications in high-ranking conferences such as ACM CHI and ACM UbiComp, with over 500 citations and an H-index of 10. She received a Best Paper Award at ACM CHI in 2017 on public evaluation techniques, and has notably researched the social acceptability of passenger VR in-flight.
