Michelle Quist (MRes) Facial masculinity is a cue to women's dominance

I completed my MRes in 2011 and was awarded a Distinction. My thesis project suggested that women with more masculine facial characteristics are more likely to behave in a dominant, aggressive manner during social interactions and was published in Personality and Individual Differences. Another project that I completed during my time in the lab investigated the role of socisosexuality in women's preferences for symmetric men and was published in Archives of Sexual Behaviour. After completing my MRes in the Face Research Lab at Aberdeen, I was awarded a fully-funded PhD studentship at the University of Houston.
