Personal profile

Research interests

I am an interdisciplinary applied cognitive scientist focusing on understanding high-level cognitive processes (e.g., collaborative problem solving, social cognition) during human interaction with social and technological environments. I primarily study these phenomena from a Dynamical Systems perspective, which is a quantitative approach to characterize how interacting components of a system change and coordinate over time. My research aims to examine multiple scales of analysis (e.g., behavior, cognition, and physiology) to explain the functional coordination of a system's components as they span the boundaries of individuals and technologies in support of collaborative interactions.

External positions

Research tasks associated with the Ecology of Psychotherapy: Integrating Cognition, Language, and Emotion (EPICLE) project. These tasks specifically related to modeling patient therapist coordination and their relationship with therapeutic outcomes. (University of Southern Denmark)
