I am interested in how we learn, remember and recognise faces and my research focus is forensic facial identification.  The theoretical basis of my studies has been featural versus holistic face processing, own race bias in face perception, and the influence of facial expression and affect on face recognition judgements.  The applied focus of this work has been development of facial composite procedures and applications, and psychometric development of biometric face recognition applications.  I collaborated on development of the Colossus face recognition systems and EvoFIT facial composite software.
