I am a scientist working in experimental psychology and cognitive neuroscience. These pages are about my research.
I am mainly interested in face perception and face recognition. My colleagues and I investigate how we recognize familiar faces, how we learn new facial identities, why people are more accurate at remembering faces of their own ethnic and age groups, how we perceive age, sex, and attractiveness in unfamiliar faces, and how our knowledge about other people is structured in semantic memory. I am also interested in how these aspects of face and person perception change across the adult lifespan.
Since September 2014, I work at Durham University, UK, where I run an EEG lab. Before that, I was a Principal Investigator in the DFG Research Unit Person Perception at Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, Germany.
