Biography

Jasmin Cloutier joined the faculty of the University of Chicago in 2010 as an Assistant Professor in Psychology.  He previously was a postdoctoral associate at Tufts University and M.I.T. (2008-2010), and received his PhD in Psychology and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College (2003-2008). His work focuses on various aspects of person perception, using the methods and perspectives of social cognition and social neuroscience.

Research Interests

  • Social categorization and stereotyping from faces
  • The neural substrates of person perception
  • The influence of context and person-knowledge on person perception
