PhD Supervision

f you are interested in doing a PhD or a postdoc in cognitive neuroscience, please contact me for an informal discussion of topics and funding opportunities. Currently I am interested in the following topics:

1. The time course of object and face processing using EEG

2. The effect of facial disfigurements on perception and attention to faces

3. Configural and emotional processing in faces

4. Brain mechanisms underlying object-based visual attention
