Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Vogt's is Associate Professor at the Department of Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence. His research interest is very broad and ranges from First and Second Language Acquisition to Social Robotics. In particular, he focuses on understanding the cultural, social and cognitive mechanisms that underlie the development of language and communication, both in learning and evolution.

Dr. Vogt takes a multidisciplinary approach: ranging from artificial intelligence and psycholinguistics to ethnographic research and developmental psychology; using a variety of methods: agent-based computer modelling, robotics, word learning experiments, naturalistic observations and cross-cultural comparisons. Following a usage-based approach of language development, he assumes that humans learn language by its use in interactions, and consequently that variation across individuals, cultures and social backgrounds can explain variation in language development.
