About the Expert:
Feel free to visit my website:

Brief research summary: I am an assistant professor of cognitive psychology at The University of Memphis. Broadly described, my primary area of interest is the psychology of language. I study how people become coupled together during linguistic interaction (such as in their eye movements). I also investigate how complex thinking and learning unfold in time by tracking the dynamics of people's arm movements (by using, for example, the Nintendo Wii remote). My work is motivated by the ideas and tools used in the study of complex dynamical systems. I have recently been interested in theoretical issues tying together dynamics with classical theories of cognition in a more pragmatic, plural approach to cognitive science.
