Personal profile

Personal profile

My research focuses on our visual system’s ability to recognize people from their faces, and its remarkable occasional failures to do so.  I study individual differences in face perception and face memory across populations. I am curious about understanding what makes it possible for us to learn faces and how this might differ across people. I am especially interested in interventions that help those who struggle with face processing, like people with autism and prosopagnosia, improve their ability. 


I coordinate PS2110 (How can psychology change the world: applied and developmental perspectives) and contribute to teaching on PS3201.
