Dr. Louise Ewing joined UEA in 2015. She gained her undergraduate degree, Masters (Educational and Developmental Psychology) and PhD in the School of Psychology at the University of Western Australia. Upon completion of her studies she took up a postdoctoral fellowship in the Person Perception Node of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders. In 2014 she moved to the UK to take up a postdoctoral fellowship at Birkbeck, University of London investigating face-processing strategies in typically developing children, adults and individuals with Williams syndrome. In her research she uses behavioural techniques and electroencephalography to investigate the mechanisms of face and person perception – with a particular interest in how these skills develop in typical children and atypically developing populations, e.g., individuals with autism spectrum disorder, Williams syndrome and Down syndrome.
