My research interests lie in the domain of emotion/affective science and nonverbal behaviour. Much of my work is concerned with the empirical investigation of the socio-cognitive and affective processes in human perception and behaviour. This includes research on facial expressions, especially morphological and dynamic features and their role in emotion interpretation. More recently, I started to explore commonalities and differences in human and machine classification of emotions, with a particular focus on how various elicitation methods (i.e., posed, spontaneous, naturalistic) influence recognition accuracy. Other research interests relate to the general area of social perception and attribution, particularly aspects of face perception and various factors (i.e., social context, face realism, ethnicity) that moderate people’s judgements.
