Areas of interest
My research area focuses on human movement, timing and coordination, with the focus on the synchronisation of movements. I am interested in multi-sensory integration and synchronisation in those with typical and atypical developing individuals, and how everyday activities that involve for instance, interpersonal synchrony may improve social-cognitive skills.
Our Social Cognition and Movement Rehabilitation Lab (SCMR) investigates various topics on the role of non-verbal behaviours in everyday conversations, social-cognitive effects of interpersonal synchrony (two or more individuals moving together in time) and explores movement interventions (e.g. dance exercises) for older adults with and without medical conditions.
