Research interests

As the co-director of the Social Brain in Action Lab (www.soba-lab.com) and the PI on the ERC Starting Grant 'Social Robots' (www.so-bots.com), I lead a team who explores experience-dependent plasticity in the human brain and behaviour using neuroimaging, neurostimulation and behavioural techniques. As I am particularly interested in complex action learning and perception, my team often makes use of action experts and training paradigms from highly skilled motor domains, such as dance, music, gymnastics, contortion, and acrobatics. In addition, I have a longstanding interest in aesthetic perception, and have performed a number of studies exploring the impact of affective experience on how we perceive others. More recently, as part of the 'Social Robots' project, my team and I are examining how social experience or expectations about artificial agents shape how we perceive and interact with robots. My primary research tools are functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), transcranial magnetic imaging (TMS), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), reaction time measures, and behavioural training paradigms.
