Research interests

My research interests are broadly based on social cognitive neuroscience, particularly within the following areas:

  • Emotion processing of faces (e.g. experience and recognition)
  • Embodied cognition (e.g. empathy, mirror neuron system, emotional simulation and sensorimotor oscillations)
  • Formation and maintenance of social groups (e.g. ingroup versus outgroup status) 
  • Clinical (e.g. mood disorders) and non-clinical individual differences (e.g. personality traits)
  • Social identity (e.g. race, sex, gender, social class and popular culture representation)
