Alex Jones is a Lecturer in Psychology at Swansea University. Alex’s research focuses primarily on the human face and the kinds of information it holds about us, from our personality, health status, and attractiveness. Alex is also interested in developing a biological account of how cosmetics function to alter facial appearance.
Alex obtained his PhD from Bangor University, and has just returned to the UK from a postdoctoral research associate position at Gettysburg College in the United States. During his PhD he investigated the presence of personality signals in the human face, and how sex differences in faces are exaggerated by the use of cosmetics. In his postdoctoral role he researched the role colour plays in our perception of health, sex, attractiveness, and age.
Alex has collaborated with major industrial partners during his research, helping shape product and claim developments. He has also written for The Conversation, and regularly works with NBC in the United States on health psychology topics. His work has been covered by global media outlets, appearing on television, radio, and in newspapers.
When he is not researching faces, Alex teaches programming for psychology skills to postgraduate students and developing his own skills in this area.
