I am an ESRC fellow and Principal Investigator (PI) on The ConFace Project : Identifying Novel Markers of Concealed Face Recognition (ES/R008744/1, www.conface.org). The aim of the project is to advance our understanding of how our brains recognise faces. The practical aim of this project is to find ways to help police detect lies about face recognition. The focus of the research is on recognising faces and detecting that recognition, rather than detecting lies more generally.
