Jamie Whitehouse is a Research Fellow within the Department of Psychology, working under PI Prof. Bridget Waller on the European Research Council (ERC) funded project: FACEDIFF. In the past, Jamie's work has focused primarily on social behaviour and communication in non-human primates and in his current role, he aims to uncover the evolutionary origins of individual differences in facial expression through comparative research on macaque monkeys.
