I joined the Department of Education in December 2015 as a Teaching Fellow in Research Methods in Psychology. My research focuses on face perception, with a particular emphasis on romantic partner preferences.
At York, I teach on the Undergraduate course in Introduction to Skills for Studying Psychology in Education (Year 1) and Research Methods for Psychology in Education I (Year 2). I supervise Undergraduate final year projects and I am, also, a pastoral supervisor for first year Undergraduates.
My research focuses on face perception, with a particular emphasis on romantic partner preferences.
My current project focuses on perceptions of trustworthiness, status, and attractiveness in highly variable face images, examining their relative salience as a function of exposure time, romantic relationship type, and sex, among other factors.
