Facial Composites - Professor Richard Kemp

What is this research about?

Another major focus of Richard Kemp's research has been the use of facial composites in criminal investigations. Facial composite systems, such as E-Fit or Photofit are used by the police to help witnesses produce a likeness of the perpetrator. Research conducted by Richard and other members of his research group have demonstrated that these systems can be used to produce high quality images.

Richard is currently investigating the cross-race effect in facial composite construction.
