Facial expressions play an important role in nonverbal human communication: we spend much of our waking lives interacting with other people, reading their facial expressions to figure out what they might be feeling, thinking or intending to do next. Xia Fang's aim is to shed more light on the two processes of emotion perception, expression and perception/inference, with a special focus on the roles of dynamic expressions and cultural frames. She investigates how people across cultures infer an expressor's emotions based on their static or dynamic facial expressions and how they produce facial expressions of emotion themselves. She also asks how people draw inferences about the expresser's personality traits based on their perception of their facial expressions.
