I pursue an understanding of non-verbal behavior specifically the way the face is perceived and have studied the skills, traits, and motives associated with qualities such as social dominance, power and leadership. Iam also interested in learning more about the mechanisms of social behavior in naturalistic settings and this has led me to study organizational behavior as well as effective student learning behavior. I joined my current institution in 2004, after holding a visiting fellowship in Behavioural Sciences at the National Institutes of Health, USA. I have over 100 publications (2019 H Index =40) and have secured approx £2.4m in research income to date. I served as Associate Editor for the journals Cognitive Neuroscience, Frontiers in Cognitive Science, Frontiers in Educational Psychology as well as The Leadership Quarterly and was elected a Fellow of the British Psychological Society in 2015. I am also a Visiting Professor to the University of Gibraltar.
