I’m a social psychologist in the Psychology Department of the University of York (UK) and at the Max Plank Institute’s Department of Social Neuroscience. In general, I’m interested in the nonverbal expression of affect and affiliation during social interactions and how we adapt to express ourselves in both physical and virtual worlds. To get an idea of the kind of work I do, check out The Wunderkammer, a suite of virtual worlds we use to study human affect, cognition, physiology, and behavior. I have also recently developed Proxemic Imaging, a tool for using motion capture data to study social interactions. My work is published in book chapters and academic journals including Nature Neuroscience, Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, and Media Psychology.
