Expertise

When people speak, they tend to produce all kinds of gestures with their hands. What cognitive processes influence the production of such gestures and what does this tell us about how and why gestures are produced? In my empirical dissertation research, I tested how several factors, such as: a speaker's mental image of the addressee, computer mediation, the difficulty of a (secondary) task, low level priming (alignment), and aphasia affect gesture production, thereby revealing more about the functions of gesturing and the cognitive processes underlying it.

Currently, I focus on the inter-personal repetition of hand gestures. I study how and why people repeat each others' gestures. The knowledge thus obtained informs a new model of gesture and speech perception and production, which I am working on in collaboration with Prof. Dr. -Ing. Stefan Kopp's group at the University of Bielefeld.

Projects

For my current project, see Expertise. My earlier research has been on communication in non-cooperative situations, the acquisition and use of skills that require advanced cognition, learning from instruction, and individual differences in multi-tasking.
