Richard Russell regularly teaches classes on Sensation and Perception, Experimental Methods, and the Advanced Laboratory in Perception.
Work in his laboratory is focused on understanding how we perceive faces and how we make inferences about other people from their facial appearance. Much of this work involves investigating physical differences between faces, such as how the face changes with age, how male and female faces differ, and how do the faces of healty and unhealthy people differ. He also studies how we use this kind of facial information when we form impressions of other people, such as how old they are, how healthy they are, and whether we find them attractive. Richard is also developing a biolgically-based account of how and why makeup works.
