What I Study

My research concerns both the coordination processes that underlie human communication and the development of methods to assess coordination. In particular, I am interested in how people respond to the sound of another’s actions and synchronize with their movements. I take an complex systems approach, drawing on theories from dynamical systems, non-linear approaches to motor control, ecological, cognitive and social theories; I employ a range of statistical tools (mixed effects models, circular statistics, dyadic analysis, longitudinal and time-series methods, bootstrapping); and I draw from several areas of applied mathematics (signal processing, fractals, non-linear dynamical systems, and surrogate methods).

What I Teach

Currently, I teach behavioral statistics courses at the graduate and undergraduate level. Some of the courses have been developed in the Rmarkdown format and I have uploaded the course notes.
