Assistant Professor of Psychology
Russell is interested in how we perceive information about other people from their face (i.e. identity, age, and sex). He identified a population new to science, face 'Super-Recognizers', also identified sex and age differences in facial pigmentation, and created the 'Illusion of Sex' to demonstrate the importance of these differences for face perception. He also put forward an empirically-based account of why cosmetics are worn the way they are.
