Departmental Lecturer (Asst Prof)
Dejan is a Departmental Lecturer at the Department of Experimental Psychology, a Stipendiary Lecturer for St. John’s College, and affiliated with the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OHBA) at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN).
Dejan’s research programme focuses on understanding how cognition unfolds during ecologically valid and naturalistic behaviour in real-world contexts. In particular, he is interested in how memories of different timescales form during natural tasks and, in turn, how these memories ultimately guide a wide variety of behaviours. Dejan further studies how we select and prioritise information within memory in service of ongoing behaviour.
An important part of advancing this research has been the development and utilisation of methods necessary to measure cognitive processes during unconstrained behaviour. This work has covered topics such as open and reproducible research practices, Virtual Reality, permutation tests in MEG/EEG data, online behavioural experiments, and mixed-effects/multilevel models.
Dejan teaches Core Practicals for undergraduate students and Statistical Methods & Theory for graduates.
