Research Interests

In my PhD work I am interested in attention in everyday life. My research examines how factors like body position and relationships with nearby objects and people can all shape how attention is employed.

Recent topics I have been working on include:

How does body posture bias attention?

How do nearby other people, and their relationship to us, shape where we attend and what we do in particular locations?

How do actions directed towards on-screen items differ from actions directed towards real items?

What do we choose to signal (or not signal) to others about where we are attending?

 

In the past I also studied how infant cognition changes over the transition to walking!
