What is the link between the body and the self? How do we become aware of ourselves and of others? How do we relate to and respond to the images that power human culture? These are some of the key questions that we research.
Academics are fortunate enough to spend their whole career surrounded by young minds. A privilege that few other professions can give you. These are the people who make our research possible, successful and most enjoyable. The people to whom I am grateful for their creativity, skills and openness.
Since 2003, our research has resulted in numerous publications in peer-reviewed international journals. In addition to the research articles we publish, we think it is important to take the time to consolidate our findings in original theoretical and review papers.Several of our papers are among the most-cited articles in our field of research (source: Thomson Reuters Citation Thresholds).
We are trying to stay on top of things, be aware of the most important news in our field and whenever possible to contribute to what is timely and important.
Our research has attracted interest from media around the world, and has appeared in major international news organizations, such Reuters, BBC, The Times, The Guardian, El Pais, Le Figaro, Wall Street Journal, El Mundo, Huffington Post, and Scientific American.
