Project

Appraisal-driven patterning of emotional expression and experience

General Information

University degree: Psychology (Yale University)

Research interests: Emotion; interpersonal perception 

My research focuses on elucidating the mechanisms underlying interpersonal perception, using tools from psychology, as well as cognitive and neuro-science.  In particular I am interested in the perception of others' emotion, and of more general social traits (e.g. trustworthiness).
