Lecturer in Psychology, Swansea University

I am interested in social and evolutionary perspectives of psychology, and have used these approaches to study topics related to face perception. My work has examined facial cues to personality, physical and mental health, and differences between men and women in terms of skin texture and colouration. I've also investigated the way cosmetics can change social perceptions and how they act on naturally occurring differences between men and women. My most recent projects have investigated body image and misconceptions of attractiveness ideals between men and women.
