My research focuses on how we perceive other people, such as how we categorize others into social groups and infer their emotion or personality via facial cues, and more generally how we understand and react to our social world. My lab and I examine the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying person perception, stereotyping and less conscious forms of bias, and decision-making in social contexts, including the interplay of social, emotional, and visual processes in perceptual and interpersonal judgments. We take an integrative and multi-level approach that makes use of several techniques, including functional neuroimaging, computational modeling, and behavioral paradigms.
