My works aim to understand how humans use visual information to recognize objects. To this end, I use psychophysics and electrophysiology to investigate low-level visual properties (e.g. spatial frequencies) and how they modulate the recognition of stimuli. My studies are done thanks to the collaboration of healthy participants as well as people who have difficulty recognizing faces (prosopagnosia) and written words (dyslexia). Recently, topics in social perception (racism, other-race effect, first impressions) are central to my laboratory.
