Research summary

My research interests lie in the general area of social perception and attribution. In particular, I am studying social psychological aspects of face perception and various factors that moderate people’s judgements. These concern (1) attributes of the stimulus target such as the type of facial expression, the nationality/ethnicity of the face, and the presence of contextual cues, as well as (2) attributes of the perceiver such as empathic ability, stereotypes, and racial bias.

Research carried out in my laboratory focuses on the following topics: emotion, facial expression, face perception, deception, uncanny valley, mimicry, stereotypes, objectification
