I am a cognitive neuroscientist and experimental psychologist with a primary interest in the basic mechanisms of perception and cognition, and the dysfunction of these processes in individuals with cognitive impairments. I have additional interests in social psychology and social neuroscience. Most of my published academic work has involved face perception and recognition, and the study of the dysfunction of these processes in individuals with Prosopagnosia (or Face blindness). Prosopagnosics fail to recognise even the most highly familiar faces and much of my scientific work has been dedicated to understanding why these individuals have failed to develop such a fundamental social-cognitive ability. In my research I primarily use electroencephalography (EEG) and behavioural techniques and am currently in the process of branching out into using other neuroscientific methods (e.g. Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and studying other social-cognitive domains.
