Dr. Roth's education is in experimental psychology in general, cognitive science in particular. His research addresses issues in mental imagery, especially how properties of objects that we experience every day influence the way(s) in which we create visual images of them. A secondary interest involves how the
perception of another person's personality affects (if at all) our perception of their physical attractiveness.
