Profile

Person perception expertise is critical to guiding everyday social interactions and is highly developed in adults. Subtle cues to identity, gender, ethnicity, age, attractiveness, emotional state and focus of attention are effortlessly read from the face in particular. Yet all faces are remarkably similar as visual patterns, so we rely on very subtle differences and variations between them to make all these judgements. My research focuses on how we process faces and bodies. I have a particular interest in determining how the mechanisms of person perception mature in children.

Trying to understand the mechanisms underlying an ability we usually take for granted is fascinating in its own right and may also provide insights how such processes break down, as in autism.
