Research

My work focuses on human social communication – i.e., how people transmit and decode signals (e.g., facial expressions) for social interaction – with particular focus on cross-cultural communication. Consequently, I examine the influence of knowledge and concepts (i.e., culture) on visual and categorical perception, particularly the processing of social signals. My approach is interdisciplinary, combining traditionally distinct fields, such as psychophysics, social psychology, information theory, and social robotics.
