Lisa DeBruine

Lisa DeBruine – Professor in the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of Glasgow. She runs the Face Research Lab and the KINSHIP project, a ERC Consolidator Grant to study “How do humans recognise kin?”. Her empirical empirical research focuses on kinship and how social perception of morphology affects social behaviour. Specifically, she is interested in how humans use facial resemblance to tell who their kin are and how people respond to cues of kinship in different circumstances. She is also interested in the behavioural immune system and how pathogens influence mating and social behaviours. Her meta-science interests include teaching computational skills for reproducible research, large-scale collaboration (especially the Psychological Science Accelerator), and developing web-based resources for increasing reproducibility in data collection and stimulus generation.
