About Robin Kramer

I am a Lecturer in Psychology and joined the department in October 2017. Prior to this, I carried out postdoctoral research in both the UK (Bangor, Kent, Aberdeen, York) and Canada (Brock, Trent). My research focusses on two areas: 1. Face perception and social cognition (from an evolutionary perspective) 2. Face recognition and within-person variability (using both behavioural evidence and computational models)
