Hi everyone,

I'll also take the chance to introduce myself, as a very junior member 
of the group (great idea, it's a shame we haven't had something like 
this until now...).

I just completed my PhD on face perception at the Max Planck Institute 
for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen, in Heinrich Bülthoff's 
Department, mainly supervised by Isabelle Bülthoff. In my thesis, I 
explored different aspects of how faces are processed and encoded, using 
psychophysics, eye-tracking, and a high-level adaptation approach (this 
study I did in Gillian Rhodes' FaceLab in Perth). Currently, I am 
working on projects about how the sex of faces is represented in the 
brain (using an fMRI adaptation paradigm) and about cultural differences 
in eye-movements, together with colleagues from the Department of Brain 
and Cognitive Engineering at Korea University.

And, I am looking for a post-doc position - so if anyone has anything to 
offer, please think of me :-). I would be particularly interested in 
studying how face processing and encoding (in healthy and maybe impaired 
individuals) is shaped by experience. But since our field offers a lot 
of interesting questions to tackle, there might be other projects just 
as exciting…

Looking forward to more face-related posts/discussions/exchange,
