Research interests

My work uses techniques derived from psychophysics to better understand how socio-cultural environment modulates fundamental visual processes, ranging from the extraction of low-level visual information (e.g. sensitivity to spatial frequencies) to the processing of complex visual information (e.g. face, objects, scenes).

Principal ongoing projects

. Impact of culture on visual information extraction

. Ethnic bias impact on the facial information processing of other ethnicity.

. Visual mechanisms underlying facial expressions recognition.

. Impact of culture and prejudices on the processing of the facial expression of pain.

Research interests

My works aim to understand how humans use visual information to effectively recognize faces, facial expression of emotions, written words and letters. To this end, I use psychophysical techniques (e.g. Bubbles, Reverse Correlation) as well as electrophysiology (EEG and ERP) to investigate low-level visual properties (e.g. spatial frequencies and orientations) and how they modulate the recognition of stimuli. My studies are done thanks to the collaboration of healthy participants as well as people who have difficulty recognizing faces (prosopagnosia) and written words (alexia or dyslexia). Recently, topics in social perception (racism, other-race effect, first impressions) are central to my laboratory.

Principal ongoing projects

. Individual differences in the perceptual processing of faces.
. Relationship between face identification and recognition of facial expressions.
. Other-race effect.
. Impact of attention in face processing.
