Vanessa Fasolt (PhD)

I graduated with a BSc (Honours) in Psychology from the University of Glasgow in 2015. My MSc research (2015-2016) focused on leadership, namely what facial characteristics influence leadership choice in different contexts, such as peacetime and wartime. Moreover, I have been working on perceptions of facial adiposity and the reasons why different people respond to cues in adiposity in different ways.

My PhD (2016-2020) on the ERC-funded project “How do humans recognise kin” will investigate third-party judgments of facial kinship cues and the role of kinship cues on pro-social and sexual behaviour and leadership judgements.
