Biography
Gillian Rhodes received her PhD from Stanford University in 1986 and is currently a Professor of Psychology at the University of Western Australia. She leads the Person Perception Program of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders. Her research focuses on how we perceive, read, and recognize faces. She is the author of Superportraits: Caricatures and recognition, and has co-edited several volumes on face perception, including most recently, The Oxford Handbook of Face Perception.
She has held two ARC Professorial Fellowships (2003-2012) and an ARC Discovery Outstanding Researcher Award (2013-16).
Key research
Faces convey a wealth of information that guides our social interactions. At a glance we can assess a person’s identity, gender, ethnicity, age, attractiveness, emotional state and focus of attention. This fluency is remarkable given the difficulty of the discriminations required. We aim to understand the mechanisms (perceptual, cognitive, neural and evolutionary) of person perception and how they relate to other cognitive abilities and social functioning. A major new focus is on how person perception skills emerge during typical development and in children with autism. Our long-term goal is to develop interventions to enhance person perception, and ultimately, social functioning and quality of life in individuals with person perception difficulties. Our work is conducted in the FaceLab http://www.psy.uwa.edu.au/facelab/index.htm, which hosts the Person Perception program for the ARC Center of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders.
