Personal profile

Biography

I am interested in evolutionary approaches to behaviour, am a member of the Centre for Comparative and Evolutionary Psychology. My research focuses on human mate choice, especially movement and facial attractiveness. Before joining Portsmouth, I completed my PhD at the University of Bristol on the topic of improving ecological validity in facial attractiveness research. I previously worked for three years in the scientific and medical publishing industry. Before that, I completed an MSc in Evolutionary Psychology at the University of Liverpool, and a BA in Natural Sciences (zoology) at the University of Cambridge.

Research Interests

I am interested in evolutionary approaches to behaviour. My research focuses on human mate choice, especially facial attractiveness. Most research into facial attractiveness has relied on static stimuli such as photographs, and I am interested in the role of motion in attractiveness. I use motion-capture techniques isolate dynamic information, and morphing techniques to manipulate facial shape in videos. I am also interested in other aspects of human mating such as mate search, the process of finding suitable mates.
