Research

My research focus is on face recognition, and I am due to submit my PhD thesis at the beginning of 2020. More specifically, I work with individuals who have difficulties recognising faces and live with a condition called "prosopagnosia", more commonly known as "face-blindness". Recently, I have been involved in research with individuals whose abilities are at the other end of spectrum and are "super recognisers", and investigating the developmental trajectory of face processing skills starting with infants as young as 11 weeks old.
