Research Interests

Conversation is one of our most common and highly skilled activities. When we talk with other people, we perceive and produce a remarkable amount of social, emotional and linguistic information. This information is conveyed visually through the movements of our face and body and acoustically through our voice. In my laboratory, we study the perceptual and cognitive activities that make conversation possible.  We use a variety of experimental techniques such as eye tracking, motion capture, animation and psychophysics to explore the multisensory processes and brain structures that are involved in face-to-face communication.
