I have a general interest in all aspects of face processing and face recognition abilities using individual differences approach. My main area of research are deception detection, implicit face-trait judgements, face memory and emotion perception among developmental populations across age and culture.

Research interests: implicit cognition, deception detection, face memory and emotion perception, perceptual familiarity, trait judgements, Developmental populations (prosopagnosia, autism, alexithymia), age-effect, other-ethnicity effect.

I use a range of techniques, including behavioural and cognitive studies, eye tracking, physiological responses (heart rate, skin conductance, respiration), and micro expressions.
