I have seen a talk of Vassiki Chauhan at Dartmouth College's Department for Psychological and Brain Sciences during the Winter of 2019. She is an engaging speaker that clearly and convincingly communicates the research results of her and her collaborators. Her work is insightful and she demonstrated sophisticated methods and experiments to investigate her research questions on the perception of familiar faces, using a variety of methods, and with a strong theory-driven approach. Apart from an engaging, scientifically solid, and clear presentation of her work, there are many topic-independent aspects I want to highlight: She gives and takes credit where appropriate, cares for inclusiveness in her language, and is an attentive speaker who displays a great ability to make her complex accessible and understandable. Her talk sparked my interest in a topic I haven't had a previous interest in, and led to captivating discussions between speaker and audience that I still remember very well even a year after I attended her talk. Conflict of interest: I was a visiting student at Dartmouth College at the time, and early during my stay Vassiki helped me to find housing. This isn't as much a conflict of interest though, much rather an indication that Vassiki is a genuinely kind person.
