My research focuses on how social information, especially facial expressions, affect social interactions and decision-making. Specifically I would like to understand what shapes both successful and unsuccessful social interactions and decisions, and the effect that facial expressions of emotion have on both processes. I am interested in the dyadic interpersonal nature of these displays; how a partners displays influence our behaviour but also how we use our displays to shape the behaviour of a social partner.
To investigate these questions I conduct behavioural and social cognition studies examining how people navigate social interactions; how people make social decisions; how social interactions and decisions are shaped by facial expressions or emotion information; how facial expressions and emotional displays are interpreted; and how beliefs about motives shape interpretations of facial expressions and emotion displays.
Abnormalities in early visual processes are linked to hypersociability and atypical evaluation of facial trustworthiness: An ERP study with Williams syndrome.
