Ayako Ueda

First gaining notice for her appearance on NHK’s Asa-ichi morning program as a “face researcher,” Ueda’s discussion on how to present your face in the most socially appealing way piqued the interest of viewers across Japan. Currently working at the Japan Women’s University as a professor, Ueda’s goal is to discover more about how our faces effect our interactions with others through “face research” on topics such as facial expression, make-up application, and facial structure.
