I am currently completing my PhD in the Brain and Cognition Laboratory at Flinders University, under the supervision of Professor Mike Nicholls and Dr Nicole Thomas. I am very interested in social perception, and the first impressions that we make about others based upon their facial appearance. Most of my work has focused on judgments of attractiveness and trustworthiness. My most recent research has been investigating ensemble perception, and the way that irrelevant faces in a group scene can influence the first impressions made about a single face of interest.
