1 PhD Research Position Micro-Expression Analysis from Naturalistic Scenarios (Project MENSA) A micro-expression is a brief and involuntary facial movement which reveals a genuine emotion that a person tries to hide. Psychologists have been studying facial micro-expressions since the 1960’s. But in the last few years, computer scientists are beginning explore the possibility of spotting and identifying these microexpressions using machine vision and learning algorithms. The analysis of spontaneous micro-expressions has many potential applications; clinical diagnosis of psychological conditions such as autism and depression, and also criminal interrogation and lie detection. This is a contemporary field of research; we are among three leading institutions in this new field of research. This position is available from August 2016 until filled.
