Job description

Research Interests: I’m most interested in social interaction and what is it that makes complex phenomena, such as mutual understanding in conversation, seem so effortless for healthy individuals.

Ongoing Research: My focus is to develop new tasks that resemble natural interactions, and the methods to identify whether social cognition relies on certain specialized brain areas and processes, or if it is an emergent property of more general cognitive capabilities and structures.
