Hello Everybody,

Firstly thank you Peter for starting this list; I am sure it will prove very useful to all involved.

I will also introduce myself. My name is Kevin, and I have been working in the area of face perception and recognition since my undergraduate degree. I am now writing up my doctoral thesis at the University of Birmingham, where I have been investigating how social categorization influences perceptual processing and memory for same-and other-race faces.

Within the last week, I am pleased to announce I have had my first set of PhD studies accepted for publication in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, where I investigated how social categorization influenced same-race and other-race processing in intra-or interracial contexts.

My research interests in face perception are broad, but mainly focus on two ideas: (1) How social information determines the form of processing and memory outcome for faces (2) How and why are faces categorized into groups? (Whether these are salient or non-salient group memberships). Anybody who is interested in my work, please feel free to contact me.

I also hope this list will prove useful in helping us form ideas, and even collaborations.

Kind Regards,

Kevin Cassidy

Hi everybody,

I am really glad of this face-list initiative and I will also take a chance
to introduce myself briefly.

My name is Chiara, I have worked on the recognition of emotional facial
expressions since my undergraduate thesis - I am now completing my first
post-doc -, and I am so fond of the topic that I wish to stay in the field
of faces for many more years!

During my PhD I focused on some aspects of the expressions' recognition
ability that can be captured by using naturalistic dynamic displays (i.e.
the existence of a dynamic advantage for facial expressions, or the ability
of the observer to rely on the dynamic invariants of facial expressions).
As a Post-doc at UCL, I am investigating  facial expression recognition as a
part of the Broad Autism Phenotype in Relatives, asking whether subtle
abnormalities in perceiving facial expressions are a shared cognitive
feature in families with children with Autism.

I join the others in hoping that this list can help building "bridges"
between face scientists, allowing us to share knowledge, ideas, and doubts.

A presto,

Hi everyone,

I'll also take the opportunity to introduce myself.

I am not involved in research programm on faces, but I am interested in
having a better understanding of non verbal issues.
As a coach I am using some results from the Process Communications. And
what I would like is to challenge it with others approaches.
I hope it will be possible with you!
