Welcome to the Social Psychophysics lab!

We aim to understand human social communication – that is, how people transmit and decode complex signals (e.g., facial expressions) for social interaction – with particular focus on cross-cultural communication.

Consequently, we examine the influence of knowledge and concepts (i.e., culture) on visual and categorical perception, particularly the processing of social signals.

Our approach is interdisciplinary, combining traditionally distinct fields, such as psychophysics, social psychology, information theory, and social robotics.
