Jonathan A. Caballero is a cognitive and behavioral scientist specializing in social perception and its role in decision-making. Currently, he is a postdoctoral researcher at McGill University, in Canada, where he conducts studies addressing the role that verbal and non-verbal cues play in the perception of social situations, personal traits, and affective inferences and how this information influences social interaction and ultimately health and well-being in healthy and clinical populations. His research is done using a combination of perceptual, behavioral, acoustic, and electrophysiological methodologies. The long-term goal is to generate knowledge of how ambiguous social information guides decision-making and to use this knowledge to inform interventions for improving the quality of social outcomes in clinical populations and in healthy individuals that, nevertheless, are exposed to negative social treatment, such as speakers with nonstandard accents.
