Research Overview

People readily make social judgements such as attractiveness or trustworthiness from faces. In fact, these impressions can be made as quickly as 100ms. However, the field tends to focus on the cues in faces themselves. My research aims to examine the influence of prior knowledge and associated stereotypes on these judgements. I am also interested in the idea that different photographs of the same people can give rise to different impressions and in using face images with a wide range of variability.

My research has been funded by the ARC, ESRC, British Psychological Society, Experimental Psychological Society and Brain.
