Research Interests:

I am broadly interested in understanding the neural mechanism underlying how gesture production affects cognition, how we perceive the gestures of others, and how these processes change across development. I am also interested in understanding how gesture can be used most effectively as a teaching tool and whether this is dependent on the age of a learner.
