Research Overview


  • My main area of research investigates how we process visual information about faces. My research aims to understand the perceptual and cognitive mechanisms underlying how we access and use socially useful information from faces such as identity, sex, race and emotion. How do we tell who someone is and how can we tell what they are feeling? How do we do this when the incoming visual information is constantly changing with viewpoint and lighting? And how might our ability to recognise faces and facial expressions of emotion affect social functioning?
