About

My main research interests are kin recognition, facial resemblance and face processing. Specifically, I am interested in how humans use facial resemblance to tell who their kin are and how people respond to cues of kinship in different circumstances. I am also interested in how the visual system learns about faces and what visual adaptation effects can tell us about the face processing system. I have published more than 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals on these topics and am the co-founder of the Face Research Lab at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.

I was appointed in 2011 to the Royal Society of Edinburgh's inaugural Young Academy. I am also involved in the running of the Human Behavior and Evolution Society (HBES) and the European Human Behaviour and Evolution Association (EHBEA).
