Expertise

Dr. Vogt's is researcher at the Tilburg centre for Cognition and Communication. His research focuses on the understanding the cultural, social and cognitive mechanisms that underly the evolution and acquisition of language and communication. He is particularly interested in investigating how humans (and machines) can ground the meaning of linguistic utterances in the real world, and how they learn language from each other through social interactions. To study this, he has used a variety of techniques, ranging from artificial intelligence and psycholinguistic experiments to ethnographic research of children's language acquisition in different cultures. The primary objective of his research is to innovate caregiving and educational practices that improve the language development of children from different cultural and social backgrounds.
