Alex Jones, Postdoctoral Research Fellow
pspcc8 [at] bangor.ac.uk
Alex hails from the valleys of South Wales, but moved to Bangor for his undergraduate degree in Psychology. After completion, he moved on to his PhD investigating the perception of social traits from the face, learning about how we make judgements of others from their faces alone and the accuracy of these judgements. He has also worked alongside various industry partners to see how we respond to faces in advertising. When not in the lab, Alex enjoys cycling, reading, listening to /playing music, and judging people based on their faces.
