Lisa DeBruine is a Professor in the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of Glasgow and runs the Face Research Lab. Her empirical research focuses on kinship and how the social perception of morphology affects social behaviour. 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. She sometimes blogs about rstats. She also serves as the Registered Reports editor for open access journal Evolutionary Human Sciences.
