My research investigates how internal cognitive processes are grounded in the body, the environment and the social world. In the standard information processing accounts of cognition, the theoretical model is of a cognitive system that thinks and acts in isolation. Accordingly, laboratory experiments quarantine subjects away from a social context. In my research, I find that a rich interaction between cognitive, perceptual-motor and social factors plays out in the body and eye movements of people perceiving the world, acting upon it, and communicating with each other.
