I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Leeds in 2008, having spent a year abroad at the University of Wisconsin-Madison during this. After completing my PhD at the University of Stirling, which focused on the role of artificial odours in human mate choice, I undertook a 6 month post-doc investigating the effects of make-up on self-perceptions which was funded by a popular high street chain.
I am now employed as a research assistant working with Dr Alex McIntyre and Dr Faye Skelton in their state of the art 3D/4D imaging lab. This project aims to create a longitudinal database of 3D4D face stimuli which will allow us to investigate the production and perception of face movements and facial expressions, as well as mapping the facial development of children and adults, and investigating how factors such as health and lifestyle interact with this. The goal is to create a large and detailed database, allowing for a variety of investigations and cross-disciplinary collaborations.
