Jovana Vukovic (2010, PhD) Individual differences in voice perception

I completed my PhD in 2010. My PhD investigated how vocal characteristics influence attractiveness judgments and resulted in five first-authored publications in peer-reviewed journals. When I left the Face Research Lab, I took up a position as a postdoctoral researcher at Durham University. I now have a tenure-track Assistant Professor position at West Texas A&M University.
