Dr Andrew Edmonds

  • Job title: Lecturer
  • Department: School of Life Sciences and Education

Background

My main area of research interest is face perception, which I first developed during my undergraduate degree at Manchester Metropolitan University. Having obtained a first class award in Psychology, I then went on to study for an MSc in Psychological Research Methods at the University of Stirling, working closely with some of the leading researchers in the face recognition field in Vicki Bruce and Peter Hancock. I then took up a Research Assistant position at Cardiff University, a project which represented the first extensive study into the processes of face detection, with Michael Lewis. Upon completing the project, I began my PhD under his supervision, looking at the effects of rotation on a variety of face processing tasks. Towards the end of my PhD the opportunity arose to work with Robert Johnston at the University of Kent, during which time we wrote a comprehensive review of the differences between familiar and unfamiliar face processing. In my most recent postdoctoral role at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) I have extended my interest in cognitive psychology to the area of location memory, looking at whether two memories for a location provide more accurate recall than just one.
