Eric Hehman is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at McGill University and director of the Seeing Human Lab. Generally, Dr. Hehman’s research examines how individuals perceive and evaluate one another across group boundaries (e.g., race, gender, sexual-orientation, occupation, etc). To address these questions, he takes a multi-method approach, incorporating a broad range of behavioral (e.g., computer-mouse tracking, digital face modeling, group interactions) and statistical techniques (e.g., multilevel modeling, structural equation modeling).
