Alexander Jones joined Middlesex University in 2013. Before joining the Psychology department he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Laboratoire Psychologie de la Perception, Universite Paris Descartes. Prior to Paris he worked as a visiting lecturer and research fellow in London (BPP, City University). Jones received his PhD from City University London, where he is now also an honorary research fellow.
Broadly, Jones’ research interests include attention, action, and multisensory integration, and using cognitive neuroscience techniques to investigate how the brain and behaviour relate. Focus has been on exploring how we select and attend to information which is constantly bombarding our senses, in particular how we process and attend to tactile information. Of interest has also been to explore how we process sensory information which is a consequence of our own actions (action prediction). Moreover, he is interested on how do we perceive other peoples’ actions (action observation), and is this different for experts and non-experts.
He is also the Associate Editor of Frontiers in Psychology.
