Joanna Wincenciak (ESRC Postdoc) Mate preference versus choice

My research interests lie in social perception and understanding how we perceive and interpret behaviour of other people in a naturalistic environment. More specifically, I am interested in how our judgments of actions, emotional states and intentions of other individuals in a real world are influenced by our prior visual experience. I am currently working on an ESRC-funded project investigating how laboratory studies of face preferences relate to the real-world mate choice.

After a 1-year postdoc in the Face Research Lab, I moved to Newcastle in 2015 to take up a position as a Research Associate in the Clinical Ageing Research Unit.

As a PhD student at the University of Hull I worked in the Social Brain Lab supervised by Tjeerd Jellema (University of Hull) and in the Action Perception Lab supervised by Nick Barraclough (University of York). Prior to this I studied Psychology at the Edinburgh Napier University.
