Research Interests

Broadly speaking, my research interests are psycholinguistics and embodied cognition. In particular, I am interested in: 1) the mechanisms underlying the interaction between the language and the action systems; 2) how hand movements facilitate problem solving and language processing; 3) how gestures facilitate pragmatic and emotional processing during language comprehension; 4) individual differences in gesture and speech. To address these issues, I combine multiple methodologies including electrophysiological (EEG), virtual reality, motion tracking, eye tracking, and behavioural experimentation.
