In my Music, Action, and Dynamics laboratory, we use the movements and timing between people during musical performances and social interactions involving Music to understand the cognitive, perceptual, and social mechanisms that allow people to coordinate their actions. We study how Music affords social and emotional experiences and leverage dynamical systems and time-series approaches to understand musical experiences. In addition, my research group is involved with the BiAffect project, where we use naturalistic smartphones to study mood and cognition.
I am looking for new graduate students to start in Fall 2023 on music projects and BiAffect.
