Prof Peter Hancock
University of Stirling
I have a first degree in Chemistry, an MSc in Intelligent systems and a PhD in Computing Science, and have been a lecturer in Psychology since 1995.As Deputy Head I help with the departmental budget, and chair the resources committee.
Stirling has a beautiful campus. I have a
of the view from my office.
I'm responsible for the
Psychological Image Collection at Stirling
(PICS) image archive. If you'd like to contribute your images, please let me know.
I'm on the editorial boards of Applied Cognitive Psychology and Network: computation in neural systems. Please contact me if you think you might have something suitable for publication therein.
I'm principally interested in the perception of faces and what kind of representations we might use: how do we tell whether two different faces are the same or different people? Together with Charlie Frowd I'm developing EvoFIT (
), a novel holistic facial composite system.
My PhD thesis looked at issues of representation in neural nets and genetic algorithms, in particular the problem of coding a neural net on a genetic string.
