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.
