My research explores the structure and cognition of drawings and visual narratives. In particular, my work argues that drawings and sequential images are structured and processed using similar principles and mechanisms as verbal and signed languages. My work explores these "visual languages" across all levels of structure. I use linguistic theory to detail the structure of these systems, and corpus analysis to examine how they differ across cultures. Finally, I use psychological methods of experimentation, primarily cognitive neuroscience (EEG), to examine how people's brains process individual and sequential images.
